Irvington NJ Man Pleads Guilty to Attempted Murder for Allegedly Shooting Man Over Parking Space

Irvington NJ Shooting SuspectAn Irvington NJ man has reportedly pleaded guilty to repeatedly shooting another man in a dispute over a parking space.

According to authorities, the 33-year-old defendant became embroiled in a heated argument with his mother’s neighbor. The defendant was attending a Labor Day party at his mother’s house in September 2013.

Prosecutors said that the defendant left his mother’s home and confronted the 42-year-old victim in the street. The victim was reportedly returning from work at the time.

As the victim attempted to walk away from the argument, the defendant reportedly shot him. Prosecutors said that the defendant fired at least four shots, hitting the victim four times in the torso.

Thankfully, the victim survived the shooting.

The defendant ultimately avoided trial by reaching a plea deal with the prosecution. The plea agreement calls for the defendant to plead guilty to attempted murder.

The defendant will still have to return to Essex County Superior Court in Newark NJ on February 6, at which time he is set to be sentenced. While awaiting sentencing, the defendant is being held in custody at the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark.

Prosecutors in the case are expected to recommend that the defendant receive a sentence of 12 years in New Jersey State Prison. The terms of the plea agreement will require the defendant to serve at least 10 years before he becomes eligible for release on parole. Additionally, the defendant will have to meet strict parole terms for 5 years after his release.
