Man facing 5-10 years on drug charges, other offenses

We have written before on our Union County criminal law blog about how people might be charged with crimes unrelated to those that police might initially question them about.

However, when they arrived, they say that they found evidence that led to drug charges against a 30-year-old man.

It's important for New Jersey residents to know that being charged with a serious crime is not the end of the world.

Like many eastern states, New Jersey has very strong gun laws. People may even find themselves running afoul of weapons crimes even if they aren't aware that they are doing something against the law, such as collecting certain antique weapons.
