According to prosecutors, when 34-year-old Marckles Alcius crashed a stolen bakery truck into the lobby of a Planned Parenthood in East Orange, New Jersey on February 14, 2018, he was willing to die.


Three people were treated for minor injuries after the crash, two women that where there for "routine medical care," and a worker.  One of the patients was pregnant at the time.


In the days after the crash, Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Kaitlyn Wojtowicz stated that the damages were "extensive" and repairs would take several weeks.


As a result, Alcius was initially charged with first degree terrorism which carried a possible sentence of up to 30 years in prison.


As a part of a plea deal however, that charge will be dropped.


Alcius pleaded guilty on Thursday, October 22 to three counts of aggravated assault, causing or risking widespread injury or damage and being in possession of a stolen truck. He faces a sentence of 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on January 7, 2021.


According to he must serve 85% of his term before he will be eligible for parole, and once he is released, he faces the possibility of deportation to Haiti.
