Foreman Surrenders Registration with Prejudice Following Charges of Unlawful Possession of an Assault Firearm, Possession of Cocaine, and Simple Assault
December 18 2018
Today, the Commission accepted the request of Peter Law Jr., 51, of Monroe Township, New Jersey, to surrender his registration as a longshoreman with prejudice. Law was a foreman at Port Newark Container Terminal. He faced charges at an administrative hearing of unlawfully possessing an assault firearm (specifically a SKS 7.62 mm rifle with detachable magazine type, collapsible stock, and an attached bayonet), possessing cocaine, and committing a simple assault. He allegedly represented a danger to the public peace or safety by his presence at the piers or other waterfront terminals in the Port of New York district.
Following his arrest related to the above charges, the Commission, on March 7, 2017, temporarily suspended Law’s registration pending an administrative hearing. On December 12, 2018, rather than appear for his hearing, Law requested the surrender of his registration with prejudice. Today, the Commission granted the request.
