A Pennsylvania corrections officer has been suspended from his job and faces a minimum of more than three years in prison after being charged in New Jersey with carrying a gun without a state permit. Raymond Hughes, who does have a carry permit in Pennsylvania, was returning from a concert in Atlantic City when he was involved in an accident with a drunk driver. He told officers responding to the crash that his gun was under his seat. Days later, he found himself facing a felony charge.
