New Jersey has stiffened penalties for airport security breaches after a 2010 incident at Newark Liberty International Airport. While offenders used to be charged as disorderly persons, they can now face up to 18 months in jail under a new law. "We know all too well that security threats exist, so obviously we need more than the threat of a disorderly persons charge for those who violate basic airport security rules," said state Assemblywoman Annette Quijano.
