Travis J. Tormey and the criminal defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC recently represented a client charged with unlawful possession of a weapon in Newark, New Jersey. The case was handled at the Criminal Division of the Essex County Superior Court located at 50 West Market Street in Newark, New Jersey. Because this is a second degree indictable (felony) level offense, the client was facing 5-10 years in New Jersey State Prison if convicted of this charge.
The client had no prior criminal history and was allegedly found with a shotgun in his vehicle that was not properly permitted or registered in the State of New Jersey. The initial plea offer was three (3) years New Jersey State Prison, one (1) year to be served without the possibility of parole. Our criminal trial team put a package together for the prosecutor asking for a Graves Act waiver which would allow our client to avoid the mandatory prison time and parole ineligibility associated with these firearms offenses. Our client was employed and had a young child on the way among other things. Based on these factors, we were able to negotiate a sentence of non-custodial probation on behalf of the client and he avoided prison altogether.
