On Friday, June 10, 2016, the Honorable Melanie S. Appleby, J.S.C., sentenced Ronnie Kimball, 26, having a last known address of 976 President Avenue in Toms River, to a period of eighteen (18) months in New Jersey State Prison, concurrent to a sentence he is serving for a parole violation.

The defendant entered a guilty plea on April 18, 2016, to a charge of fourth (4th) degree Obstruction by Failing to Register pursuant to Megan’s Law. The crime date was on or about Saturday, November 28, 2015. The offense occurred in Toms River Township. Former Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Adam J. Hess initiated the complaint. The defendant has been continually incarcerated since the date of his arrest. He is being housed at the Albert C. Wagner Youth Correctional Facility. After Kimball was taken into custody pursuant to a parole warrant, it was learned that the defendant had moved into Toms River Township without registering with the police department as required under Megan’s Law.

This matter was prosecuted by Assistant Ocean County Prosecutor Ehsan F. Chowdhry of the Megan’s Law Unit of the Special Investigations Bureau. Assistant Deputy Public Defender Ernest A. Ryberg represented the defendant.
