Weapons Charges: Reduced Sentence

Defendant was indicted for firearms possession – including a discharge of a gun.  In the New Jersey State Superior Court, such offenses have mandatory jail sentences of 5 years.  We negotiated a plea to waive the mandatory sentence and argued to the judge for a probationary sentence.  The judge – in a rare decision – gave Defendant probation and only 15 days.
