Union County Man Sentenced to 33 Months for Conspiring to Target Asian Small Business Owners in Burglaries

MORRIS COUNTY, N.J.Kevin Jackson, a 57-year-old resident of Rahway, New Jersey, was sentenced today to 33 months in prison for his involvement in a conspiracy targeting the homes of Asian small business owners, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced. Jackson had previously pled guilty before U.S. District Judge Evelyn Padin to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property. The sentence was handed down today in Newark federal court.

Between December 2, 2016, and March 20, 2019, Jackson was part of a conspiracy that burglarized residences belonging to Asian small business owners across New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. The conspirators stole significant amounts of money, valuable jewelry, and other items, which they transported across state lines, including to locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

In addition to his prison sentence, Jackson was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $294,586 in restitution.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Dong Joo Lee of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Cybercrime Unit in Newark represented the government in this case.
