Kristopher Dohm is facing up to 10 years in state prison

NEWTON — A father from Hopatcong who disappeared with his two young sons for more than a month in 2015, prompting a massive nationwide search, faces sentencing Friday.

Kristopher Dohm could be sent to prison for up to 10 years when he appears before Superior Court Judge William McGovern.

Dohm, 38, pleaded guilty March 8 to two counts of second-degree interference of custody.

Dohm had a shared parenting agreement with the boys’ mother. She reported them missing on Feb. 9, 2015, when they were not returned to her home in Landing by Dohm.

He and his boys were found at a Florida hotel on March 18, 2015.

Dohm was arrested and returned to New Jersey, where he remains at the Sussex County jail.

As part of his plea agreement, two more serious counts of first-degree kidnapping will be dismissed at sentencing, the NJ Herald reported.

Authorities said Dohm changed the license plates on his vehicle multiple times and used stolen New Jersey license plates as he fled.
