Lawyer caught with loaded gun while trying to board Newark Airport plane bound for Cuba

Port Authority cops busted a Pennsylvania lawyer for trying to bring a loaded gun on to a plane bound for Cuba, officials said.

The officers arrested Maurice Harmon, 63, of North Hampton on Saturday about 9:30 a.m. after an X-ray machine in Terminal C at Newark Airport picked up a 9-mm. Glock 19 in his carry-on bag, officials said.

The gun was loaded with an illegal extra-capacity clip with 18 bullets including one in the chamber, officials said.

Harmon was flying to Havana, officials said. He was charged with illegal weapons possession and unlawful possession of a high capacity clip and is now being kept at the Essex County jail.

On his firm’s website, Harmon writes that he started out as a prosecutor in Colorado, before becoming a photographer for magazines like Sports Illustrated, Golf & Travel, Golfweek and others. He also shot commercials for Rolex, Ernst & Young, Penguin Books and K-Mart.

He resumed his legal career in 2003, specializing in copyright infringement.

In 2007, his firm sued Random House on behalf of Neal Biedleman, a survivor of the Mt. Everest ordeal detailed in Jon Krakauer’s best-seller, “Into Thin Air.”

The lawsuit alleged that Random House didn’t fully pay Biedleman for the use of photographs he took of the 1996 climbing season that left eight dead. Harmon’s firm won the case.
