Prosecutor 2Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp announces that Andrew Pfitzenmayer, 27, of Peapack in Somerset County, was sentenced today before the Superior Court Judge Salem V. Ahto and received a sentence of 3 years in New Jersey State Prison, with a 1-year period of parole ineligibility.

Pfitzenmayer was arrested on July 29, 2015,  when the Morristown Police Department responded to the Headquarter’s Plaza building, located at 19 Speedwell Avenue, regarding a call about a man acting suspiciously.

Pfitzenmayer was placed under arrest on scene for possession of weapons charges.

On October 27, Pfitzenmayer pleaded guilty before Judger to one count of 2nd degree unlawful possession of a handgun. The psychiatric evaluation that was previously ordered by the Superior Court Judge Stephen J. Taylor, pursuant to a court order, was filed under seal and will not be available to the general public.

Prosecutor Knapp stated: “This case demonstrates how important it is for everyone to be alert to their surroundings at all times. We greatly appreciate the efforts of Headquarters Plaza Security, the Morristown Bureau of Police and other law enforcement agencies which acted so quickly to prevent any possible further criminal activity.”
