Atlantic City Underage Gambling Lawyer
In the state of New Jersey, it is illegal for underage individuals to gamble in casinos and in private locations around the state. Underage gambling is treated very seriously by law enforcement officials and prosecutors, and the penalties, even for first-time offenders, can be significant. Even an underage person who is on the casino floor can be charged with a crime that could end up as a permanent mark on a criminal record. I am John W. Tumelty, and I have practiced criminal defense in Atlantic City, Cape May County and across the state of New Jersey. For more than 30 years, I have prosecuted and defended individuals on a wide range of criminal charges, including underage gambling and other juvenile crimes.
If you are being charged with underage gambling, or your child is facing such a serious charge, you need to speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
