According to New Jersey's Graves Act, if a weapon is used while committing a crime, such as carjacking, aggravated assault, robbery or a sex crime, the penalties for conviction are increased. The law calls for mandatory prison sentences, increased penalties and parole ineligibility periods. Often in these cases, the defendant is unable negotiate a plea bargain and therefore must take the case to trial. For this reason and many others, representation from a highly experienced criminal defense lawyer can be extremely beneficial.
