Monmouth County Gun Charge Lawyer

Don’t let a firearms offense leave you with a criminal record. Find out how to defend against your gun charge by working with a Monmouth County weapons charge lawyer.

While people tend to think of firearms and weapons charges as obvious violations of the law, the truth is that it’s actually deceptively easy to break certain gun laws and not even realize it. This has left more than one gun owner with an undeserved criminal record.

If you’ve been charged with a firearms offense, a Monmouth County gun charge lawyer from Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC. can help you. We’ll never give up on your case, and our primary goal will always be to achieve an acquittal or a dismissal of the charges against you.

Understanding Your New Jersey Gun Offense

Gun laws in New Jersey cover a great deal of ground. Some involve threatening and harming others, while other offenses are charged for carrying a gun by the wrong person or in the wrong place.

If you absent-mindedly carry a gun into a restricted area, that could be all it takes to find yourself arrested and facing criminal charges.

Additionally, the use of a gun in conjunction with another crime can elevate the offense you’re charged with, resulting in an aggravated offense or something like assault with a deadly weapon. The penalties you face will increase along with the severity of the charge.

Penalties for Firearms Offenses in Monmouth County

In the best-case scenario, your gun charge will be a disorderly person charge, which is essentially a misdemeanor. If this is the case, the legal penalty you face could be up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.

Unfortunately, many weapons offenses are indictable offenses—felonies. For a fourth-degree felony (the least serious), you face up to eighteen months in prison and a steep fine of up to $10,000. More serious violations will result in higher-degree charges, and the penalties only increase with the degree.

Your Monmouth County gun charge lawyer will be able to help you determine what punishment the prosecution is likely to pursue and how to formulate your defense. These are just a few of the gun crimes we have experience defending against:

  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Unlawful possession of a weapon
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Concealed weapon charges
