LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Municipal Court settled four cases on Thursday, Jan. 9.
Marie Stoll of Livingston was charged with DWI, an open container of alcohol in a vehicle, consumption of alcohol in a vehicle, failure to exhibit a driver’s license, failure to exhibit registration and an improper motor vehicle turn.
All charges, except the charges of DWI and possession of alcohol in a motor vehicle, were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Stoll plead guilty to both offences. For possession of alcohol in a motor vehicle, she was sentenced to pay a $206 fine with $33 in court cost fees. For DWI, Stoll was sentenced to pay a $256 fine, a $33 court cost fee, a $200 DWI surcharge, $50 to the victim of crime compensation fund, and $75 to the State Neighborhood fund.
Stoll must also attend the intoxicated driver recourse center for 12 hours and her license has been suspended for three months.
Co-defendants, Janice Banks and Andrew Peters from the same address in Irvington were charged with theft by deception at Macy’s of the Livingston Mall. Banks, a now former employee of Macy’s, went into the store on her day off with Peters. She then rang up $1600 in gift cards without payment and handed them over to Peters, who subsequently left the store with the cards. Banks rang up several customers before proceeding to leave the store herself. The case, originally determined to be indictable, was reviewed by the Essex County Prosecutors Office and downgraded to the disorderly person’s level.
Banks and Peters both plead guilty to the charges as written. For their offense, they both received one year probation, and were each sentenced to pay a $750 fine, a $33 court cost fee, $50 to the victim of crime compensation fund, and $75 to the State Neighborhood Fund.
Tyree Williams of Newark was charged with shoplifting, criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools at Macy’s of the Livingston Mall. Using two separate pairs of scissors, Williams destroyed a security cable and anti-theft censors totaling a value of $100. He then attempted to steal a North Face jacket valued at $149.
The charges of criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools were dismissed as part of a plea agreement. Williams plead guilty to an amended charge of theft and was sentenced to pay a $500 fine, $33 in court cost fees, $50 to the victim of crime compensation fund, and $75 to the State Neighborhood fund.
