BB Gun Charge Dismissed Bergen County NJ

Have you been arrested with a BB gun in Bergen County and you need a lawyer? You’ve come to the right place. Here is a real case we handled several years ago for a client facing similar charges with great success.

The criminal defense attorneys of the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented two brothers who were stopped in a motor vehicle with another one of their friends (who was the driver of the vehicle) on the Palisades Interstate Parkway. A search of the vehicle led to charges for illegal weapons possession (BB gun) and possession of marijuana. Unbeknownst to many, a BB gun is considered a firearm in New Jersey, so the defendants were facing a felony charge and mandatory imprisonment without parole if they were convicted of this offense.

The first step was to have the felony gun charge downgraded to the Municipal Court based on the defendants lack of prior criminal record and the fact that this was a BB gun and not a handgun or other form of firearm. Our criminal defense lawyers were able to convince the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office to remand the case to Municipal Court rather than prosecuting the gun charge as an indictable (felony) level offense at the Bergen County Superior Court in Hackensack, New Jersey. As a result, the case was remanded (downgraded) to be handled at the Municipal Court located in Palisades Interstate Park. Then, at the Municipal Court, the driver of the vehicle took responsibility for the marijuana that was in the car. Therefore, the charges were dismissed against our clients and they have no criminal record from this incident.
