Unlawful Possession of a Weapon in New Jersey
Charges involving firearms and other weapons are heavily punished in New Jersey. In 2008, the laws surrounding these crimes were amended, and a first offense, in a conviction, can lead to up to 10 years in a state correctional facility. How these cases are handled by your criminal defense attorney is extremely important, as whatever opportunities for your defense case exist, they must be identified as early as possible in the process. Our Morris County defense firm is well-versed in the recent laws regarding firearms and weapons, and what the possibilities are to avoid a conviction or pursue the option of a reduced charge. It could not be more important that you contact our firm immediately.
The Factors That Impact Sentencing
Punishments for theft crimes will vary based on the specific details of the case.
The answers to these questions often play a large role in what punishments are suggested by the prosecution attorney:
- Was there a weapon involved?
- Was anyone injured from the acts of the accused?
- Where did the theft take place?
- Who was the victim, and how old were they?
- What was the value of the item stolen?
You do not want a theft charge on your permanent record as it can seriously hinder your ability to get quality jobs, hold certain professional licenses, or even attend certain colleges. You do not want to take this risk of hiring an inexperienced criminal lawyer. When accused of any serious criminal offense, I will move forward at once to gain any possible advantage, whether challenging evidence, fighting against efforts to move the case to adult court, or negotiating with the prosecution to reduce the charges.
