Understanding N.J.S.A. 2C:35-12
Under N.J.S.A. 2C:35-12, it is unlawful to obtain CDS by fraud or any means of misrepresentation. The law stipulates that it’s illegal to acquire, possess, or forge a fraudulent or counterfeit certificate of destruction required under N.J.S. 2C:35-21. Breaking this law results in a third-degree crime punishable by up to $50,000 in fines and a jail sentence of 0-5 years with the presumptive period of incarceration of 3-5 years.
It’s crucial to note that violating N.J.S.A. 2C:35-12 is not limited to drug offenses alone; it includes theft or similar crimes defined in chapter 20 with its independent set of charge/penalty as well. Plus, this offense qualifies for a mandatory driver’s license suspension lasting up to six months irrespective of the mode of conviction.
