She suffered a left orbital fracture.

York is barred from making contact with S.S.

In the second incident, which occurred on October 22, 2020, York was at a shelter on 1st Street in Clifton, with his current girlfriend, J.M. He got into an argument that turned physical. He struck her in the face.

She suffered a nasal bone fracture.

York must complete domestic violence and anger management counseling as part of the plea deal.

York has been in the Passaic County Jail since October.

York is scheduled to be sentenced on March 19 at 9 a.m.
