DHS – A former federal agent who pleaded guilty to brandishing a handgun in a show of authority during an altercation with his neighbors over a parking spot was sentenced to six months in jail and probation.
Robert A. Loller Jr., 40, a now-former agent with the Department of Homeland Security, Division of Customs and Border Protection, was sentenced by Judge.
In addition to 180 days in the county jail and three years probation, Loller will be required to forfeit his firearms carrying permit.
Have no future employment with any New Jersey state agency or office, undergo a Treatment Assessment Services for the Courts evaluation, and pay $1,389 in fines and fees.
He will also lose his driver’s license for 10 years.
Loller was indicted by a Sussex County grand jury on May 4 on charges of second-degree official misconduct, second-degree possession of a handgun with the purpose to use it unlawfully against another, second-degree burglary, third-degree terroristic threats, and fourth-degree possession of large capacity magazines.
In a negotiated offer in September 2017, Loller pleaded guilty to third-degree terroristic threats and driving while intoxicated.
Loller has been arrested three times for DWI, according to court records.
According to the indictment, on June 16, 2017, Loller entered a neighbor’s apartment without permission and brandished his service handgun, and threatened to “terrorize another or in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror.”
Erica Williams, Loller’s then-fiancee and now wife was also indicted on charges of third-degree aggravated assault on a police officer, third-degree resisting arrest and fourth-degree obstruction stemming from the same incident.
Williams, 23, accepted a plea offer in September 2017 for 18 months pre-trial intervention and will be required to complete 75 hours of community service.
According to the indictment, when a Hardyston police officer was trying to effect a lawful arrest the evening of the altercation, Williams caused him bodily injury, specifically by “using or threatening to use physical force or violence against the officer.”
After she was arrested, she also allegedly scratched the officer’s face.
The indictment also states that Loller was found to be in possession of two 30-round AR-15 magazines loaded with .223/.556 ball ammunition in his residence.
