Somerset County NJ Weapons Lawyers
Gun Charges Attorneys in Somerset County, New Jersey
If you have been charged with a weapons offense in New Jersey it is imperative that you speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. It is well that New Jersey has some of the strictest gun laws in the entire country. If you have been charged with the unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, or certain persons not to possess a firearm, you are most likely facing not only mandatory incarceration but a mandatory parole ineligibility period as well. On top of that, in 2017, New Jersey completely revamped its bail system. Now the prosecution has the ability to seek to detain anyone charged with a criminal offense in the Somerset County Jail, pending trial, without bail. Traditionally the system is more favorable to releasing individuals on pretrial conditions as opposed to a monetary bail and/or detaining them without bail. However, that is not the case when it comes to weapons offenses. The trend is for the prosecution to file for a Detention Hearing on most weapon related offenses, especially gun charges. These hearings can and should be contested. To speak with one of our Somerset County criminal defense lawyers today about your options, please contact us at (908)533-1064.
