Newark New Jersey Man Gets Prison Time for Carjacking

Newark NJ Carjacking AttorneysA Newark New Jersey man has been sentenced to a lengthy term of incarceration after being convicted of committing a number of carjackings in Essex County, NJ.

According to federal prosecutors, the suspect was caught after robbing two people in a car on December 15, 2012. The suspect was said to be one of three individuals who walked toward the victims’ Chevrolet Equinox parked on a Newark street during the early morning hours.

One of the suspects allegedly brandished a handgun and instructed the driver to hand over his cash, his cell phone, and the keys to the car. The driver reportedly gave the suspects his money and his phone, but he tossed the car keys underneath the vehicle. Once the suspects had retrieved the keys, they allegedly threatened to shoot the victims.

The victims managed to get away and ran from the suspects. One of the victims dialed 911 and notified law enforcement of the carjacking. Police then activated an application on the victim’s stolen cellphone and used it to track the vehicle’s location.

Police officers soon located the suspects outside a Newark NJ home and placed them under arrest.

The suspects were subsequently charged with armed robbery.

Additionally, the U.S. Attorney’s Office released a statement announcing that the suspects had been part of a group of individuals accused of committing a “wave” of carjackings throughout Essex County, New Jersey.

The main suspect in the case has now been sentenced to a term of incarceration of 78 months in federal prison. He recently appeared in U.S. District Court in Trenton NJ, where the judge handed down the severe punishment.

Additionally, the suspect will be subject to supervised release after he completes his sentence and is released from prison.
