Gun Possession Attorneys Mount Holly NJ
Charges for unlawful possession of a weapon or possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose are serious charges in their own right. However, when the weapon in question is a gun or firearm, then your case will become even more difficult. While advocates call for gun reform on a national scale, New Jersey has taken its own steps to prosecuting and punishing defendants caught possessing a weapon in an unlawful manner. If you were subject to a motor vehicle stop and police found you in possession of a handgun without a permit, you will be facing felony charges and mandatory incarceration. Call the attorneys at Proetta & Oliver and find out what can be done to combat your felony charges.
