Common Weapons Offenses
In the State of New Jersey, weapons offenses are strictly enforced, and due to the Graves Act, having a firearm in your possession illegally can mean mandatory incarceration for a minimum of three years before being eligible for parole on a five year sentence. And using a weapon in the commission of primary crime can mean a sentence enhancement for that crime.
Weapons sometimes become in issue in Domestic Violence matters when law-abiding citizens have their weapons seized pursuant to a Temporary Restraining Order, and must go through a Forfeiture Hearing to have those weapons returned to them. Not having the proper representation in these matters can mean that you may no longer be able to own your firearms even though you have never been charged with a crime.
If you have been arrested for a crime involving any weapons offense or have had your weapons seized pursuant to a Domestic Violence Restraining Order, please give us a call to schedule an appointment to discuss your case.
