Bunnell, FL – The defendant charged with threatening to blow up the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office and threatening to kill Sheriff Staly and his arresting deputy is sentenced to prison.
52-year-old Raymond Crown was originally arrested by FCSO back on April 26th of last year after he and another male, 48-year-old Robert Brandon, smashed a house window and slashed the tires on a vehicle in Palm Coast.
It was during his transport to Flagler County Jail that Crown threatened to blow up the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office and that he was going to kill Sheriff Rick Staly.
Crown also made threats to his arresting deputy, warning him to watch his back. His threats got him two counts of threatening to kill a law enforcement officer and one count of threatening to discharge a destructive device.
It was on January 25th of this year that Crown pled no contest to the charges. That same day, Flagler County Judge Perkins sentenced Crown to three years in prison, followed by five years of probation.
Crown, however, will receive credit for the 269 days he served in Flagler County Jail.
“Crown recently mailed me a letter from jail apologizing for the threats against my deputy and me,” said Sheriff Staly. “I hope that he is able to get the help he needs to become a productive member of society upon his release from prison.”
Yesterday (February 6th), Crown was transferred from Flagler County Jail to the Florida Department of Corrections.
