When Crimes Involve Weapons, The Consequences Are Greater Than Usual
The New Jersey criminal code takes firearms charges and other weapons very seriously. Not only does a weapon typically mean more danger for those involved, but it can also lead to heightened dangers during arrest, the subsequent infringements on your rights throughout the investigation and serious felony-level allegations.

What Constitutes A Weapons Charge?
In New Jersey, weapons charges include a wide range of crimes. The severity of the allegations will depend on numerous factors, like if you have a prior conviction, the type of weapon involved and the context. Some common allegations include:
- Possession of a weapon other than a firearm, such as a taser, a knife or another bladed weapon
- Illicit possession of a firearm, including a handgun, rifle or automated weapon
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- The presence of a weapon as an aggravating factor in another crime
The consequences of a conviction in these cases can mean years in prison even for a first-time offense. Your best course of action is to work with an experienced criminal defense law firm that can answer your questions.
