This matter was prosecuted by Assistant Ocean County Prosecutor Ehsan F. Chowdhry of the Megan’s Law Unit of the Special Investigations Bureau and First Assistant Deputy Public Defender Eugenia M. Lynch represented the defendant.

The crime date occurred on or about July 22, 2015 out of Stafford Township and the criminal complaint was initiated by Senior Parole Officer Michael A. Cullen of New Jersey State Parole. Defendant was released on a summons; however he was sentenced in the interim to New Jersey State’s Prison on an unrelated narcotics conviction from June 26, 2015 and has been incarcerated continuously on that charge at South Woods State Prison. This sentence will run concurrent to the defendant’s previous sentence. The defendant failed to comply with a general condition of parole, namely failing to obey all laws.

Upon release from New Jersey State’s Prison, the defendant will still have to comply with the parole requirements of Community Supervision for Life and now Parole Supervision for Life.
