A motion to suppress means that the gun that was recovered was recovered in violation of the New Jersey State Constitution and or the United States Constitution and therefore that gun cannot be used in the gun prosecution. If the prosecution is not able to use the recovered gun in a gun crime prosecution, the charges will likely be dismissed.
