Bergen County Guns and Drug Charges Lawyer

Bergen County NJ Guns and Drugs Charges: The firearms defense attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a client in at the Bergen County Superior Court located in Hackensack, New Jersey. The client was facing a number of felony charges including illegal possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled dangerous substance (in this case prescription drugs), and conspiracy. Our client was a resident of New Hampshire with no prior criminal record.

First, our client’s parents hired us to get him out of jail. He was being held on a $100,000 bail with no ten percent option. The Tormey Law Firm filed a bail reduction motion and convinced the judge to lower the bail to $65,000 with a ten percent option. This allowed his parents to post the 10% with the court and he was released from jail. As long as he appeared at all of his court appearances (which he did), the bail is returned to his parents upon the completion of the case.

The charges were based on the following: Our client and his girlfriend allegedly drove down from New Hampshire to New Jersey in order to trade a firearm for a number of prescription pills. This transaction was to occur at a rest stop on the Garden State Parkway but the police intervened. Our client’s girlfriend was the mastermind of the conspiracy and our client was essentially just the driver of the vehicle. The co-defendant (girlfriend) agreed to take responsibility for the firearm and for her role in the crime. As a result, she received a five (5) year state prison sentence, one year to be served without the possibility of parole. In exchange, our client received a two (2) year probationary sentence and only plead guilty to a fourth degree conspiracy charge. Considering the potential penalties that our client was initially facing, this was a fantastic result for our client and the law firm.
