The following article, Citizens Could See 6 Months In Jail Or $1,000 Fine for Breaking New Jersey ‘Stay At Home’ Order, was first published on Flag And Cross.
New Jersey isn’t playing around when it comes to its “stay at home” order. Some people could be in big, big trouble for violating the order. Here’s the deal, via App:
Police will be cracking down on those who break Gov. Phil Murphy’s statewide “stay at home” order that bans public gatherings and closes nonessential businesses, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said Monday.
Authorities will target businesses, like bars or stores, that stay open despite the governor’s demand, Grewal said during a news conference. They will also look for residents who, for instance, throw a party at their home and invite dozens of people.
The exact charge will depend on the crime. But a disorderly persons offense is punishable by a prison term of up to six months, a fine of up to $1,000 or both, Grewal’s office has said.
