I have been charged with 3rd degree identity theft and credit card fraud totaling no more than $1,500. This is my first offense and I have no prior criminal history. I have already spoken to an attorney and he said he could possibly get the charges lowered. He said I probably won't be facing any jail time considering the circumstances and under New Jersey Presumption against Imprisonment law or something like that. I didn't understand really but I was sort of relieved. He did say that I could be facing a lot of fines close to $10,000, probation or PTI, and restitution. Hes a very reputable lawyer and I trust everything he says. I would just like to have reassurance from other lawyers if this information is accurate?
