Paterson robber faces six years in state prison for taking a phone


A man feigned having a gun to rob a person of his phone. Now, he faces six years in state prison.

David Maull, 20-year-old, pleaded guilty to robbery on Wednesday. He had been charged with robbery and three weapons charges.

Maull pleaded guilty to robbery under the plea deal. His three weapons offenses will be dismissed. He will be sentenced to six years in state prison with 85 percent to be served before parole eligibility.

Maull will also be put on five years of parole supervision after release.

On July 8, 2021, at around 12:24 a.m., Maull approached a stranger and robbed him, taking his phone.

Maull did not have a gun, but pretended that he did by putting his hand under his shirt.

“I made it seem like I had a gun,” Maull said in court.

Maull is scheduled to be sentenced on March 7 at 9 a.m. before New Jersey Superior Court judge Justine Niccollai.

    I know someone who shot someone in the stomach with a real gun and a real bullet and got the same exact amount of time. I know someone else who killed someone and got 10 years (he was home in 8 1/2)
    I just think there's an unbalanced justice system. Not saying he should of been let off easier, but if he would of shot him, he would of got the same time, and if he would of killed him, he would of got 4 more years.

    Give this low life 20 years for having tormented someone for life. Don't give in to these criminals no matter what race they are. This society will collapse if we continue to give into feeling pity for these criminals. The hell with these criminals. Treat them as they treated
