Irvington Man sentenced on charges related to Domestic Violence and Contempt of Court charge

MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp announces that on July 26, 2019, defendant, Cyprian Luke, 19, Irvington, was sentenced to serve a probationary term of two years and ordered to complete the Abuse Ceases Today program and to continue attending counseling services through the Caring Partners of Morris/Sussex by the Honorable Stephen J. Taylor, P.J.Cr. on one count of Fourth Degree Contempt; one count of Disorderly Persons Simple Assault and one count of Disorderly Persons Criminal Mischief.

The investigation involved acts of domestic violence, which began in February 2019 and continued through May of 2019.  The defendant admitted to a physical altercation with his then girlfriend and mother of his child, damaged her motor vehicle, violated a pretrial release order to have no contact with the victim while his charges were pending, and when ultimately apprehended on the charges, he provided a false name to police to avoid being arrested on the domestic violence charges against him.

Supervising Assistant Prosecutor Tia Manochio, Esq. represented the State at the sentencing.

Prosecutor Knapp stated, “The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office is committed to seeking justice and protection for victims of domestic violence and holding domestic violence perpetrators accountable for their conduct.”
