A Jersey City Airbnb party with 15 people led to four people being charged with violating state orders last night, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced.
Isaiah M. George, 33, of Jersey City, Jabril Corley, 28, of Jersey City, and Megan Stoddart, 29, of Howell, were charged yesterday with violating the emergency orders by Jersey City police, Grewal said in a statement.
Additionally, Corley and another man, Marc Y. Bruny, 33, also of Jersey City, were charged with disorderly conduct.
The defendants were charged in connection with a party involving approximately 15 people inside an Airbnb rental in Jersey City, authorities said.
Violations of the emergency orders constitute a disorderly persons offense carrying a potential sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
However, violators can potentially face criminal charges including second, third, and fourth degree indictable offenses.
This is the third incident involving Jersey City residents violating emergency orders in the past week: a woman was charged for renting out her shore condo on Sunday, while a man threatened police with COVID-19, exclaiming: “If I’m going to die, you’re going to die.”
