Weapons Offense Nets Asbury Park Man 18 Years

An Asbury Park 27-year-old with a history of weapons offenses is handed an 18-year prison term for his April conviction on a firearms violation charge.

In Freehold today, Dawud Greene was sentenced to 15 years in a state prison for his guilty verdict on a second-degree charge of certain persons not to have weapons. Monmouth Superior Court Judge John Mullaney added a consecutive three-year term for probation violation.

Under terms of the Graves Act, Greene will be required to serve seven and a half years before parole eligibility. According to the office of acting Monmouth Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni, the extended sentence was meted out in light of past offenses and “aggravating factors.”

In testimony at his seven-day trial in April, a witness recounted watching Greene place a handgun in his car in the city’s Washington Village section in May 2011.

Asbury Park police who searched the vehicle found a loaded, 9MM semi-automatic handgun inside.

Prosecutors said that Greene’s previous convictions had rendered it illegal for him to be in possession of handguns.
