A conviction for disarming a police officer in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:12-11 is a very serious crime that carries a high risk of imprisonment. If you are convicted of a first degree crime for attempting to disarm, you are exposed to 10-20 years in state prison. The maximum fine is $200,000.

First Degree Disarming a Police Officer. A person is guilty of a 1st degree crime if he or she has disarmed a police officer and this disarming has progressed to the point that the gun is fired, pointed, or used against the officer. It is also a first degree crime if a person has suffered serious bodily injury because of the disarming.

Second Degree Disarming a Police Officer. A person is guilty of a 2nd degree crime if he or she has knowingly attempted to disarm or actually has disarmed a police officer while that officer is performing his duties, and is in uniform or is clearly in a position of authority.

The No Early Release Act ("NERA") applies to both first degree and second degree disarming a police officer. This results in a defendant being required to serve 85% of his prison term before he/she can be considered for release on parole.

What Clients Say About Our Ocean County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Exemplary attorneys. I hired them for a DUI and an expungement. I was happy with the results for both cases. Special thank you to Samera for always answering all of my calls and questions JC
I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
