Any individual who holds a public office, from police officers to politicians, can be accused and convicted of the crime of official misconduct. A conviction for this crime, which is a second-degree offense, means automatic jail time and the end to any public career .
I am Anthony N. Palumbo, a partner at Palumbo & Renaud who has more than 35 years of legal experience. I understand the consequences you are facing when charged with official misconduct. As a New Jersey attorney with both prosecutorial and defense experience, I will be able to address your charges on all fronts. Contact my criminal defense law firm to learn more.
Understanding Official Misconduct Charges
My history as a prosecutor provides me insight into exactly what the state must prove to obtain a conviction on official misconduct, from proving that you were acting in your capacity as a public official to proving that you knowingly committed an unauthorized act to benefit yourself or deprive someone else of a benefit. Such actions can involve any variety of white collar crimes, including misrepresentation, embezzlement and fraud. However, it is important to understand that the act you participated in need not be criminal in nature.
I am also available to assist public servants who have been charged with a crime or pattern of official misconduct.
