WARREN COUNTY, NJ – A Warren County man has been sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and resisting arrest charges, according to Warren County Prosecutor James Pfeiffer.
On July 25, 2019, a Warren County Grand Jury indicted Tyler Lusardi-Paz, 30, of Washington Township on eight criminal charges related to his assault on an individual only identified as XX and a subsequent assault on the law enforcement officer dispatched to investigate the attack, Pfeiffer said.
On May 25, 2021, Lusardi-Paz plead guilty to a second-degree aggravated assault, and third-degree resisting arrest, Pfeiffer said.
On July 23, 2021, the Honorable H. Matthew Curry, J.S.C. sentenced Lusardi-Paz to a seven year term of incarceration in New Jersey State Prison. Pursuant to the No Early Release Act, Lusardi-Paz will have to serve at least 85 percent of that sentence prior to becoming eligible for parole, Pfeiffer said.
Lusardi-Paz is currently incarcerated in the Warren County Correction Center pending his transfer to the custody of the State Department of Corrections, Pfeiffer said.
The Warren County Prosecutor’s Office conducted the investigation alongside the Washington Township Police Department.
