NJ Weapons Charge Conviction Reversed

State v. Lamar Alford, unpublished opinion, App. Div. Docket No. A-0804-07T4 (September 8, 2010) – Convictions affirmed, case remanded for re-sentencing. “Alford argues that the trial judge imposed an excessive sentence. He contends that the judge should have imposed a concurrent rather than consecutive term for the second degree certain persons charge. The judge found that the weapons charge was a separate offense, and advances the public purpose of eliminating the harm posed by weapons in the possession of convicted felons. The judge, however, stated that he was required to impose a consecutive term. That is not the case. The trial judge may have recognized at various times during the trial that a consecutive term was optional rather than mandatory, but at sentencing, he expressly stated ‘by statute it must be consecutive.’ We, therefore, remand for reconsideration of this portion of Alford’s sentence.”
