If you are a regular to this site then you know the tale of Shaneen Allen, the Philadephia single mom who took a wrong turn into New Jersey (because all turns into New Jersey are wrong and should be avoided) and was facing 10 years because she informed the officer that she had her legal sidearm with her.
I told you how the DA and the Judge both refused to let her enter a pretrial intervention program that would spare her jail time and was created for people like her, no criminal record, first time mistake type people.
Then I told you about Ray Rice beating his wife unconscious and the SAME DA and Judge GAVE Ray Rice the pre trial intervention.
Now I finally have some good news to tell you in relation to this case.
Because of all the outrage and phone calls and emails sent to the New Jersey legal apparatus the DA has finally been pressured into offering Shaneen Allen the pre trial intervention, sparing her from a trial that would have cost her thousands and held a penalty if she lost of 10 years in jail.
The Attorney General of New Jersey, seeing the spit storm mounting decided to swoop in and give everyone political cover offering “clarification” to county prosecutors with respect to out-of-state visitors from states where their gun possession would be legal.
AG John Hoffman:
“In most of these cases, imprisonment is neither necessary nor appropriate to serve the interests of justice and protect public safety.”
To which slime ball DA McClain stated:
“In applying the factors set out in the clarification, I determined that the defendant in this case should be offered the opportunity to be admitted into the Atlantic County PTI Program. I have communicated that determination to the court and defense counsel.”
Let me just say that what McClain is spewing is a big ole pile of bull excrement. After giving violent wife beater Ray Rice the PTI Program option the backlash against the state of New Jersey was so great that he was just itching for someone to bail him out and AG Hoffman obliged. So being a wife beater, in the eyes of New Jersey is at the same level as being a law abiding gun owner who makes a wrong turn into the cesspool that is Jersey?
So in the messed up world that encapsulates New Jersey, one woman will remain free thanks to another woman being beaten.
My advice to everyone…stay out of New Jersey.
