James H. Maynard, Esq. Wins Huge Victory in 2005:
In a case won by Mr. Maynard in 2005, our firm was able to exclude Failure to Verify as a criminal offense under the NJ Criminal Code for most registrants who committed their offense before March 1, 2007. As a result, this decision impacts hundreds, if not thousands, of improperly convicted people. After Mr. Maynard argued this case before the NJ Supreme Court (and won), the NJ Legislature revised the “Failure to Verify” provision. The Failure to Verify charge now includes a criminal penalty for failure to verify residential address or providing false information on their registration forms on or after March 1, 2007.
