Municipal Court Rundown

Livingston Weekly Court News, June 2 – June 8

June 10, 2014 at 6:08 PM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Municipal Court settled two cases for the week of June 2 through June 8.

Kasseem Callender of Newark was charged with shoplifting at Macy’s, for attempting to steal under $200 worth of merchandise; with giving false information to a law official, specifically for giving his wrong date of birth and trying to pass himself off as a juvenile to an arresting officer; and with possession of under 50 grams of marijuana.

The charge of shoplifting was dismissed, as a Macy’s representative did not show up to court to testify, and the charge of possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana was dismissed as the results from the lab did not return it in time for the hearing.

The charge of giving false information to a police officer was amended to creating a disturbance. Callander pleaded guilty to the charge as written and was sentenced to pay a $500 fine and $33 in court cost fees.

Alfred Montone of Fairfield was charged with giving false information to a law official when he identified himself as his brother when confronted by a police officer.

The police officer was at CVS for an unrelated issue when he noticed Montone dumpster diving. The officer initially let Montone go when the identifying information Montone provided came up clean. Soon after, it was discovered that there was a warrant out for Alfred Montone’s arrest. Montone was later apprehended by Fairfield police.

Montone plead guilty to the charge as written and was sentence to a thirteen day jail term and to pay $50 to the Victims of Crime Compensation Fund and $75 to the Safe Neighborhood Fund.
