A “certain person” charge can be brought against individuals whose previous convictions bar them from having weapons. 

Robert McMichael and Scott B. Hudson are facing a 13-count indictment in which they were jointly named in 11 of the 13 counts.

McMichael and Hudson jointly face four second-degree counts for robbery, burglary and two counts of conspiracy. They are both accused in five third-degree counts as well, for aggravated assault, theft, possession of a CDS, fentanyl, hindering apprehension and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, pepper spray. The two are also facing two fourth-degree counts for unlawful possession of a weapon and resisting arrest.

Hudson alone was named in two additional counts for second-degree eluding police in a motor vehicle and certain person. Hudson was convicted in 2013 for possession of a CDS in Cape May County.
