A 34-year-old man who injured three people when he purposely drove a stolen bakery truck into a Planned Parenthood clinic in East Orange will be sentenced to 10 years in state prison.
Marckles Alcius on Thursday pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated assault, causing or risking widespread injury or damage and being in possession of the stolen truck, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
Two patients and a staff member were treated for minor injuries after Alcius, of Lowell, Massachusetts steered the vehicle into the building’s waiting room on Feb. 14, 2018. He admitted he targeted the clinic and was willing to die, the prosecutor’s office said.
Violence can not be condoned, ditto for abortion and the great tragedy it inflicts on minority populations by some politicians and those that enable them.
