Bergen County Domestic Violence Charges NJ

Restraining Orders NJ

A man was recently sentenced to a five-year term of incarceration without the possibility of parole in Bergen County Superior Court for assaulting and threatening to kill his girlfriend, who was pregnant with their child at the time.

22-year-old Tavin Mann was charged with offenses including aggravated assault, violating a restraining order (contempt), and terroristic threats. The charges stemmed from an incident that occurred last May, at which time Mann violated his parole and a series of restraining orders, kicking his then-pregnant girlfriend in the face. Officials also say that while in jail, he threatened to shoot her.

Mann ultimately accepted a plea agreement from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office in March. Per the terms of the agreement, he pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault (N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b)) and admitted to the threat allegations in exchange for a reduction in the charges against him.

On Friday, May 30th, Superior Court Judge Edward A. Jerejian sentenced Mann to serve five years in New Jersey State Prison, during which he will not be eligible for parole. The victim, a woman from Garfield who now cares for the couple’s son, pled with the judge to allow Mann to avoid prison. However, Judge Jerejian cited Mann’s extensive criminal history and lack of response to rehabilitation as justification for the sentence imposed. According to Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor Keith Travers, Mann’s record includes ten arrests and five convictions for felony-level offenses.

The judge also stated that he hopes his decision will send a message to other potential offenders regarding the seriousness of domestic violence offenses. In New Jersey, domestic violence cases can involve a number of charges, including assault, terroristic threats, kidnapping, and harassment. In addition, violations of a restraining order entail criminal contempt charges, which are codified under N.J.S.A. 2C:29-9. These charges can be classified as fourth degree felonies or disorderly persons offenses, depending on the circumstances of the specific case. Notably,  a second or subsequent conviction for a non-indictable domestic violence contempt charge carries a mandatory term of imprisonment of at least 30 days in the county jail.
