Convictions Carry Steeper Penalties When Guns are Involved

A conviction for a gun crime carries the potential for serious penalties, including jail time. If a weapon was present during the commission of a crime, such as a robbery, then the consequences are even more severe. Prosecutors can seek longer sentences if a gun was present, even if the gun was not actually fired.

If you have been charged with a gun crime or any other weapons offense in New Jersey, make sure you hire an experienced defense attorney to protect you. At the law firm of Markowitz O'Donnell, LLP, our attorneys have extensive experience handling these cases. Over the years, we have successfully had gun charges dropped for some clients and penalties reduced for many others.
