Potentially yes. Most guns and weapons offenses in New Jersey are subject to mandatory minimum sentences. In order to receive a sentence that doesn’t include incarceration or to be admitted to an alternative disposition program such as the pre-trial intervention program, the prosecutor must apply to the court for a waiver of the mandatory minimum sentence on your charge.
Camili Law can help you investigate and prepare a legal defense that challenges the prosecution’s case that you had actual or constructive possession of a gun or weapon that you were not legally authorized to possess. If the weapon was not found on or next to your person, the prosecution will need to prove that you had constructive possession, which requires showing that you had knowledge of the weapon and the ability and intent to exercise control over it.
