PORT WATCHMAN’S LICENSE REVOKED FOR FRAUD, DECEIT OR MISREPRESENTATION AND MARIJUANA USE
August 20, 2019
The Commission ordered the revocation of the Port Watchman license of Timothy Stuckey, 26, of Hillside, New Jersey following a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). The ALJ found that Stuckey had committed fraud, deceit or misrepresentation in connection with his sworn 2014 Application for Port Watchman License when he falsely denied that he had ever used a controlled substance and during his sworn Commission interview when he falsely testified that he had last used marijuana 5-6 years prior. Urine and hair drug tests were then administered to Stuckey which yielded positive results for marijuana. When questioned during a Commission interview concerning the positive drug test results, Stuckey refused to answer questions lawfully required to be answered.
The evidence at the hearing also established that on July 16, 2017, Stuckey possessed 50 grams or less of marijuana which led to his arrest in Belmar, NJ.
Ultimately, the ALJ found that Stuckey lacked the good character and integrity required of a port watchman. After considering the entire record, the Commission adopted the ALJ’s findings and his recommendation that Stuckey’s license be revoked.
