Brian Aitken is Free

21 Dec

News broke today that NJ Governor Chris Christie has commuted the sentace of Brian Aitken, so he is now a free man. For those of you who have not been following the story, Brian was arrested in NJ for possesing 2 handguns in his vehicle while he was moving. The handguns were legal to own and he was moving them in an unloaded and proper fashion however his situation snowballed rather quickly due to his mother calling the police because she thought he was depressed, the responding officers searching his car without cause and then the judge refusing to inform the jury of the exemption to NJ’s handgun posession laws for proper transport.

There have been many articles written about the finite details of his case by actual legal scholars but I felt the need to at least put a quick post here.
