In October of 2013, a Pennsylvania resident named Shaneen Allen drove into New Jersey’s Atlantic County and was pulled over by police for an “unsafe lane change.” When the detaining officer arrived at her car window, Allen informed him that she was carrying a concealed firearm, and presented her Pennsylvania carry license as proof of eligibility. Unbeknownst to her at the time, however, was that New Jersey is among the 20 states that do not recognize Pennsylvania’s permit. In consequence, she was arrested. If convicted of the charges that the state has elected to bring, she will be locked in prison for up to a decade.
Goes onto discuss that the DA could have given her a misdemeanor or even a warning but is pursuing a felony charge with a three year mandatory minimum sentence. Prosecutors make careers out of going for the max.
The governor ended up granting clemency in a similar case and could do the same here if she get's convicted
