Newark Man Admits Committing Violent Robbery in Paterson, NJ

Newark Criminal Defense AttorneysA Newark NJ man is headed to prison after pleading guilty to robbery charges in a federal court. The suspect committed the home invasion robbery at a Paterson residence in August 2015.

According to law enforcement, the suspect and another man entered an apartment located on 20th Avenue in Paterson NJ and robbed the occupants.

In order to gain access to the residence, the suspects allegedly posed as sheriff’s officers with the Passaic County Sheriff’s Office. The victims said that the suspects wore t-shirts with the word “sheriff” on the back and had star badges dangling around their necks.

Both suspects reportedly brandished firearms and used the weapons to threaten the victims.

Authorities later identified the 29-year-old suspect as one of the culprits in the violent robbery. However, the suspect was not apprehended until December 2015, when Passaic County Sheriff’s officers located him and placed him under arrest without incident.

Now the suspect is set to be sentenced to time in a federal penitentiary after pleading guilty to criminal charges for conspiracy to commit robbery. The guilty plea was announced by the US Attorney’s Office.

When the suspect appears in US District Court, located in Newark, in April 2017, he will be subject to severe penalties. The suspect could potentially be sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
