ATLANTIC CITY - (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie says he's going to let the judicial process play itself out before he'll consider intervening in the case of a Pennsylvania woman who faces jail time for carrying a concealed weapon in New Jersey.
    
Shaneen Allen was pulled over last year during a traffic stop and said she had a Pennsylvania concealed carry permit. But the permit isn't valid in New Jersey, which has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.
    
Christie says he's been following the case closely but doesn't like to intervene in cases until they've had the opportunity to work their way through the judicial process.
    
He says once that's happened he'll consider whether he thinks the results are fair and consider potential action, such as commuting her sentence or a pardon.
