"Shaneen's Law"
Single mom from PA Shaneen Allen facing jail time in NJ

A3608 Provides courts with sentencing discretion for certain convictions concerning possession of a firearm.

A young Philadelphia mother had a permit to carry a handgun in PA She was stopped for a crossing lane motor vehicle violation. She voluntarily told the NJ State Trooper that she had a right to carry a handgun permit in Pennsylvania. She will now go to a New Jersey prison. The judge can't dismiss the case even if he wanted to, because the law is the law. A NJ Republican Assemblyman drafted a new legislative bill called "Shaneen's Law" to restore justice to New Jersey court system.

Under New Jersey's mandatory sentencing law, the judge has no authority to suspend sentence. The lady's best hope is for the prosecutor to drop the case, which he has discretionary power to do.

We consider the legislators listed below, sponsors and co-sponors of this bill, to be men and women who are displaying common sense and compassion in trying to prevent this single mother from doing jail time because the law she broke had the words "mandatory sentencing" rather than allowing for judicial discretion.
