Booby Trapping of Premises
Any device designed or likely to cause injury constitutes booby-trapping under this law. Booby trap violation amounts to second-degree crime but graduates into a first-degree offense if it causes bodily harm to another person. The prosecutor must verify certain elements of the offense for conviction, including the existence of a booby trap placed at the site, intent by placing it there to prevent entry, impede access or give notice thereof.
Fortifying of Premises
Using dogs or building materials or any other measure to make access difficult constitutes public property fortification under this category. Fortifying structures used for manufacturing or distributing CDS is a third-degree crime according to NJSA 2C:35-4.1.
The following particulars from defendants must be established by prosecutors:
? CDS use location fortified
? Defendant own occupant enters maintenance-control structure
? Intentionally creating warning signs for deterrence purposes.
