First offense gun charges in New Jersey are punished harshly. Typically in New Jersey, gun charges are treated with a certain degree of leniency; the penalties are almost always less than in subsequent penalties. However, in first offense gun charges, The Graves Act causes the penalties to be quite steep. In addition to facing 5-10 years in state prison, The Graves act stipulates that at least 3 years of this sentence be served before you are eligible for parole. What’s even worse is that the same issues exist even for a paintball gun or a BB gun. New Jersey is incredibly tough on first offense gun charges, and any gun charge for that matter.
