State Lines Offenses

Traveling Across State Lines With Weapons in New Jersey

Did you know that if you are the lawful owner of a gun in another state, and you travel through New Jersey with that gun, you can and most likely will, be charged with Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and are facing years in prison due to The Graves Act sentencing for gun offenses? Knowing the law in this area is critical, and one of the reasons that we have achieved so much success for our clients. This happens to be one of the few areas of weapons possession law in New Jersey where a reasonable outcome can be achieved through plea bargaining. the Graves Act contains a little-used provision, whereby PTI is available for anyone who is the lawful owner of a gun in another state, who happens to be apprehended while travelling through New Jersey. Knowledge of the law! This is one of the many reasons why people time and again choose the Moriarty family when dealing with the most serious crimes in New Jersey.

If you are facing gun charges, you can speak with a lawyer at our firm 24 hours a day by calling (732) 842-7773. You can also contact us by e-mail. We look forward to helping you beat your gun charges.

Kevin is professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and he gets the job done. Being a legal sceptic (I used to think they were all crooks) Kevin restored my faith in attorneys. If you have a serious matter, you want Kevin to represent you.


I hired Mr. Moriarty for a delicate professional matter and was very happy with the entire experience. Both he and his support staff were easy to deal with and ultimately, we won!
