Pieczynski, who was free on $50,000 bail, faced five years in prison on the Hunterdon County charges but fled the country in the days before his October 2012 sentencing by driving to New York and kayaking across the Lower Niagara River. He was eventually found in Toronto, at the home of a woman he had met on the Internet, federal authorities said. In May, Hunterdon County prosecutors announced he had been sentenced to four years in prison after a jury convicted him of one count of third-degree bail jumping. On Thursday, a Hunterdon County judge delivered the five-year sentence for the burglary and theft charges out of West Amwell, bringing an end to Pieczyinski’s cases in New Jersey. That sentence will run at the same time to the bail-jumping sentence.
