Defending Against Illegal Online Gambling Charges

Internet gambling is illegal in New Jersey, whether or not the operator is a state resident. If you have been accused of taking bets online for New Jersey residents or with running an Internet gambling site with New Jersey players, you may be charged with illegal Internet gambling. These cases are often prosecuted aggressively to limit competition with legal casino gambling operations in Atlantic City, racetracks and other permitted gambling venues. Because of this, people charged with illegal online gambling should consult an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can protect their rights and determine whether they were correctly charged.
