Toms River Man Gets 25-Year Prison Term Over Assault, Terroristic Threats

Raphael Powell, 38, of Toms River, was sentenced to an aggregate term of 25 years in prison, having previously been found guilty of numerous offenses.

The charges against Powell stem from an incident that occurred in Toms River Township on July 2, 2022, in which Powell assaulted a male victim, brandished a handgun, and threatened to shoot and kill him. An investigation by the Toms River Township Police Department led to Powell’s arrest on July 3, 2022, and the discovery of a stolen handgun, hollow nose bullets, and Fentanyl in his possession.

Powell was sentenced to 20 years prison with a 10-year period of parole ineligibility for the Handgun Possession charge, and an additional five years NJSP with a 42-month period of parole ineligibility for the Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose offense, to run consecutively. Powell was also sentenced to concurrent terms for the other charges, totaling 25 years in state prison. He will be required to serve at least 13.5 years before being eligible for parole.
