And while you may not know his name, you probably remember the video of this crime. Eric Scott from our sister station, New Jersey 101.5, explains more in this video from shortly after the crime was committed.
A press release says that in exchange for his plea, the State agreed to recommend a sentence of five years in state prison. Hunter will be subject to a three year term of parole supervision upon his release.
