Guilty plea by carjacker

John Nusslein

U.S. Attorney Jacqueline Romero announced that John Nusslein, 20, pleaded guilty today to one count of conspiracy to commit carjacking, one count of carjacking resulting in death and one count of carjacking resulting in serious bodily injury.

According to a previous indictment, Nusslein and others committed two carjackings in late 2021.

On Dec. 2, 2021, Nusslein and two others placed a food delivery order to an address on the 3000 block of Teesdale St. in Mayfair as a ruse to lure their intended victim to that location. At about 7 p.m., when a food delivery driver arrived at that location, Nusslein and two others approached and struck him repeatedly and stole his 2004 Toyota Camry. The driver, Chung Yan Chin, 70, died later that month.

On Dec. 16, 2021, Nusslein and another person placed a food delivery order to an address on the 9000 block of Hilspach St. in Bustleton as a ruse to lure their intended victim to that location. At about 9:10 p.m., when the food delivery driver arrived at that location, Nusslein and the other person approached him and pointed a firearm at him, demanded his money, struck him and stole his 2015 Infiniti QX5.

“The fact that these carjackers specifically lured two innocent people trying to make a living is despicable,” Romero said. “That Nusslein and the others so brutally beat one driver that his injuries proved fatal is horrific. We and our partners on the Philadelphia Carjacking Task Force simply won’t permit violent offenders like Nusslein to victimize people with impunity. They will be prosecuted, and they will go to prison for a very long time.”

“The senseless assault on these food delivery drivers is appalling and unacceptable,” said Police Commissioner Kevin Bethel.

Nusslein, of the Far Northeast, will be sentenced on July 31 in front of U.S. District Court Judge John M. Younge, and faces a maximum possible sentence of life in prison. ••
