Longshoreman’s Registration Revoked After Conviction for Unlawful Possession of Firearm

September 24, 2013

           Longshoreman James J. Sweigart was arrested after he was observed in a Newark diner with a loaded .9mm semi-automatic handgun in the waistband of his pants. Sweigart had no license for the Walther PPK pistol. The Commission temporarily suspended Sweigart’s registration as a longshoreman on January 22, 2013 pending an administrative hearing on the charge. Sweigart pleaded guilty to Unlawful Possession of a Firearm on July 15, 2013 before the Honorable Robert H. Gardner of the Superior Court of Essex County. On September 9, 2013, Sweigart was sentenced to 3 years probation, 25 hours of community service and ordered to surrender his Waterfront registration with prejudice. Today, the Commission accepted that surrender with prejudice and revoked Sweigart’s registration as a longshoreman.
