There are certain minor offenses in New Jersey, what other states would call "misdemeanors," that can result in your losing your public job or office if you are convicted or pleas guilty. But this need not happen.

- Obtaining a Forfeiture Waiver
- Pleading to Another Offense
But these involve preparation and action before you enter a plea to any charges and are sentenced by the judge. Find out more!
It is best to get an attorney to represent you in court to protect your job!
