Rutherford Man Faces Prison after Being Convicted of Vicious Assault of Ex’s Father in Wallington, NJ
A Rutherford New Jersey man could be subject to a lengthy prison sentence after being convicted on serious criminal charges of assaulting the father of his ex-girlfriend at a Wallington NJ home.
According to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, the suspect used to be the boyfriend of the victim’s daughter. Sometime after the couple broke up, the suspect traveled to the father’s residence in Wallington New Jersey and violent attacked him, causing significant personal injuries.
The suspect was later apprehended and charged with several crimes, including attempted murder, aggravated assault, burglary, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and hindering apprehension. Additionally, the suspect was charged with altering or destroying computer data because he reportedly attempted cover up evidence of his crime after the fact.
The criminal case eventually went to trial in Bergen County Superior Court, located in Hackensack NJ, with the jury returned guilty verdicts on most of the charges. The suspect was acquitted on the attempted murder charges.
When the suspect is sentenced later this year by a Bergen County Superior Court judge, he will face several years in prison. However, he will get credit for the five years he has already spent in prison while awaiting resolution of the criminal case.
In the meantime, the suspect’s bail amount of $750K has been revoked.
