Morristown Teen Pleads Guilty to Lying to Police, Reports Say

Prosecutors will recommend a sentence of three years probation when Michael Conway is sentenced next month, according to news reports.

A Morristown teen who was charged in April with lying to police about whether he was present during the robbery of a Morris Township teen who later committed suicide pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of obstruction of justice, according to a Daily Record report.

Michael Conway, 19, who was facing an unrelated charge of possession of a BB gun for a separate incident in August, also pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of harassment in connection with that arrest, the report says. The prosecution is recommending a sentence of three years probation when Conway is sentenced March 15, the report says.

Police had questioned Conway about the robbery of 15-year-old Lennon Baldwin in the Century 21 parking lot in March, which preceded Baldwin's suicide at his Morris Township home that month. Conway admitted Monday to giving police "inaccurate information," according to the Star-Ledger.

Two juveniles were sentenced to one-year probation after pleading guilty to charges related to the robbery investigation.

I didn't know possession of a BB gun was illegal. They sell them right out in the open at Sports Authority. But, the best thing to do when the cops ask you questions is to invoke your right to remain silent. Or just say that you aren't sure, you don't remember...
