JERSEY CITY, N.J. - A Lehigh County man arrested last year with a cache of weapons while on a trip he said was to rescue a teen from a drug den will ask New Jersey's governor for a pardon.
John Cramsey, of Zionsville, and two others face weapons charges after their arrest last June at the Holland Tunnel, which connects New Jersey and New York City.
Attorney James Lisa said Friday he feels Republican Gov. Chris Christie's strong stance on the drug abuse crisis could make him receptive to a pardon request.
Cramsey has tried to get into a pretrial intervention program that would allow him to avoid jail time. A judge has rejected it. Lisa said he planned to appeal to a higher court.
