NJ: Brian Fletcher’s Lawyer Continues To Push For Clemency

posted on September 5, 2015

We told you last month about Brian Fletcher, the North Carolina man arrested in New Jersey for having his legally owned handgun with him while repairing cellular towers after recent storms. Now, Fletcher’s attorney is finalizing a clemency application in hopes that Gov. Chris Christie follows through on public comments made earlier that he would pardon Fletcher.

“We have this gentleman who we’re considering right now for pardon, from North Carolina who was up here, helping New Jersey after the storm to repair cell towers,” Christie said of Fletcher. “This is just not the right way to do these things. This was not a guy who was a threat to anybody.”

According to the recent media reports, Fletcher’s lawyer, Les Hartman, planned to have the clemency application to state parole authorities by yesterday. A1F Daily will keep you updated as this story continues to play out.
