"Sale of Handcuffs to Minors is Prohibited"

Did you know that N.J.S.A 2C:39-9.2 prohibits the sale of handcuffs to a person under 18 years of age.

Violators are guilty of a disorderly persons offense.

As used in this section, "handcuffs" mean a device, conventionally used for law enforcement purposes, that can be tightened and locked about the wrists for the purpose of restraining a person's movement.

The bad news when you turn 18 is that you have to wait another three years to legally drink alcohol, but the good news is that in the interim you may purchase handcuffs and have all the fun you can think of.

If you have or know someone who may have any legal questions related to traffic, criminal, real estate or drunk driving laws, please do not hesitate to contact us.
