UPDATE: A 20-year-old Wyckoff woman whose smiling mugshot went viral will spend time behind bars, as will two of her accomplices, in a plot to beat and rob her ex-boyfriend.

Margaux Tocci was sentenced to 364 days in the Bergen County Jail for her role in the scheme to lure Robert Solis to an empty parking lot, where two associates ambushed him.

One of them, Jesse Moscatello, 22, of Oakland, received two years probation, having pleaded guilty to conspiracy.

The man who actually wielded a bat and pipe in the attack, 27-year-old Samer “Martin” Saleh of Waldwick, received four years for a similar plea.

Also getting four years in state prison was Tocci’s new boyfriend at the time — 21-year-old Daniel A. Chaupiz of Wyckoff — who didn’t participate in the assault but masterminded the plan, authorities said.

Robert Solis of Ridgewood told Superior Court Judge Edward A. Jerejian that he and Tocci had stopped dating but found themselves working together in the same coffee shop in 2012.

“I discovered I still had feelings for her,” Solis told the judge during a Friday sentencing hearing in Hackensack. “We started spending some time together, and I assumed she felt the same way.”

Then, on the night of July 26, 2012, Tocci offered to take Solis for a ride in her new car. She drove to an empty parking lot at Lincoln School in Wyckoff and suggested they go for a walk.

As Moscatello and the armed Saleh approached, Solis asked Tocci to bring him back to where she’d picked him up. Instead, she left him there and drove to the other side of the parking lot.

While beating him, the pair smashed his cellphone and took cash from his wallet, then left with Chaupiz and Tocci in the new car.

The victim went to a nearby house, where police were called. He later received stitches and was released from the hospital.

Chaupiz pleaded guilty under a separate indictment for car theft. Luring and conspiracy charges in the Tocci case were downgraded to Municipal Court.

Tocci’s sentence includes four years of probation.
