Possession of fireworks in New Jersey is a Crime

The New Jersey Attorney General has reminded the public that fireworks are illegal in New Jersey and that police will be cracking down on anyone who is found in possession of fireworks.  In addition, State Police will be watching for people who are driving to Pennsylvania to buy fireworks to bring back to New Jersey.  How they actually plan to do this is unknown.

Possession of fireworks in New Jersey is a disorderly persons offense which means that jail time is possible and you will have a criminal record if convicted.  Possession of fireworks with the intent to sell is a fourth-degree offense with a possible maximum penalty of 18 months imprisonment and fines up to $10,000.  If you are  charged with possession of fireworks in any court in New Jersey, you should call an attorney right away.  I can be reached at anytime.
