     Sussex County Prosecutor Francis A. Koch announced the sentencing of Francois Toussaint, who appeared before the Honorable William J. McGovern, III, J.S.C. at the Sussex County Courthouse in Newton on October 28, 2016.

     Toussaint, age 26, of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced to three years Probation on condition that he maintain full time employment, cooperate against his co-defendant, complete 200 hours of community service, pay $1,995.00 restitution to the victim (joint and several), and $155.00 in court fines and fees.

     He pled guilty on August 8, 2016, to three counts of third degree Forgery and one count of Obstructing the Administration of the Law, a fourth degree crime. 

     In February of 2016, the defendant and a co-defendant forged money orders and then cashed them at Branchville, Lafayette and Augusta Post Offices.  When confronted by Hamburg Police at the Hamburg Post Office he ran from the building.  A foot pursuit ensued and Toussaint was caught a short time later.  New Jersey State Troopers also assisted in the multi-jurisdiction investigation.

     Toussaint was represented by Janine Cerra, Esq. and the State was represented by Assistant Prosecutor Sally Anne Monkemeier.
