Monmouth County NJ Weapons Offense Lawyers
The New Jersey Criminal Code contains some of the most stringent weapons laws in the nation, with a variety of extremely serious charges that entail specific sentencing guidelines outlined in the state’s “Graves Act,” the details of which are provided in N.J.S.A. 2C:43-6(c). Under the Grave’s Act, the State imposes a mandatory prison term, as well as a period of parole ineligibility, for those convicted of certain weapons offenses. For example, if you are found guilty of an offense such as Unlawful Possession of a Handgun, Rifle, Shotgun, or Machine Gun, or Possession of a Firearm for an Unlawful Purpose, you may be required to serve time in prison even if you have no prior criminal record.
In addition, there are certain individuals who are permanently banned from possessing a weapon in New Jersey. Those included in this category, often referred to as “Certain Persons,” are typically those who have been previously convicted of other crimes such as aggravated assault, kidnapping, or robbery. Individuals who violate State law by possessing a weapon become vulnerable to criminal charges known as “certain persons not to have weapons” offenses. Regardless of the specific weapons crime for which you have been accused, these charges can spell catastrophic consequences, with the potential to alter your life for years to come. An experienced attorney can assist you in combating the State’s case, negotiating with the prosecution for a lesser sentence or probation, and even seeking your admission into a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention if the circumstances of your case so warrant.
