Officials say Wurttemberger was remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending an appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on Nov. 29th at 1:30 p.m.
Acting Prosecutor Calo states that the charges are merely an accusation and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
