Former Firefighter Acquitted of All Charges

You will recall from our March 13, 2014 post, the story of Tim Farrow’s recent case, where his client was found Not Guilty on charges of Possession of a Firearm with an Unlawful Purpose, a Second Degree crime, and Aggravated Assault by Pointing a Firearm, a Fourth Degree crime.

Pursuant to the Graves Act, New Jersey’s very strict mandatory sentencing law for gun offenses, Farrow’s client faced a minimum mandatory sentence of 5 years State Prison, 3 years without parole if convicted. Despite his clean record, the Prosecutor would not offer him less than a State Prison sentence. After unsuccessfully attempting to obtain a dismissal through motions, Farrow was forced to take the matter to trial on March 5, 2014, and on March 11, 2014, the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty on both charges.
