Two individuals who served as accomplices during a robbery spree in Morris County and Sussex County managed to avoid prison after pleading guilty and being sentenced to probation.
The two accomplices were a 21-year-old Far Hills man and a 20-year-old Totowa NJ woman. They were accused of assisting the main suspect, a Basking Ridge NJ man, when he committed a robbery at a QuickChek in Hampton, NJ on December 3, 2014. The male suspect reportedly served as the getaway driver.
The main suspect was also accused of robbing two other Sussex County NJ businesses and a Kinnelon NJ liquor store.
According to the Sussex County Prosecutor’s Office, the suspect brandished a replica gun during all of the robberies.
Just one day after robbing the Hampton QuickChek, the suspect was arrested by police.
All three suspects faced very criminal charges, with the two accomplices being charged with theft of movable property and conspiracy to commit theft for their roles in the Kinnelon robbery.
The accomplices ultimately accepted a deal offered by Sussex County Prosecutor’s Office and pleaded guilty to the theft charges in exchange for a recommendation of probation. The suspects will also have to perform community service and pay restitution.
The main suspect in the robberies also pleaded guilty and was sentenced 11 years in New Jersey State Prison.
