Delaware man sen­tenced in Bar­clay bur­glary, as­sault

Record Observer - - News -

CENTREVILLE — On Jan. 24, Ti­mothy Ryan Green, 27, of Hart­ley, Del., was sen­tenced to 3 years in prison with all af­ter 30 days sus­pended for his con­vic­tions for the crimes of felony bur­glary, se­cond-de­gree as­sault, ma­li­cious de­struc­tion of prop­erty and re­lated crimes. Green was also sen­tenced to two years of su­per­vised pro­ba­tion upon his re­lease for his of­fenses.

Green was con­victed by a jury on Nov. 16, 2016, be­fore the Hon­or­able Thomas Smith, re­tired Cir­cuit Court Judge from Prince Ge­orge’s County. The case was pros­e­cuted by Queen Anne’s County State’s At­tor­ney Lance G. Richard­son, who sought a min­i­mum sen­tence of at least 90 days to serve in jail.

Green’s con­vic­tions were based upon his ac­tions on June 22, 2016, specif­i­cally in­volv­ing him break­ing the door and en­ter­ing the res­i­dence of his for­mer girl­friend on Roe Road, near Bar­clay.

Upon force­fully en­ter­ing the res­i­dence, Green then re­peat­edly as­saulted a male vis­i­tor in the home by strik­ing the man in the face with a closed fist dur­ing a jeal­ous rage, Richard­son said.

The jury re­jected both Green and his de­fense wit­nesses’ tes­ti­mony and con­victed him of five sep­a­rate of­fenses.

Smith told Green at sen­tenc­ing that he “would have been bet­ter off leav­ing his wit­ness at home and that he would’ve found Green guilty, just as the jury had.” Green was rep­re­sented by at­tor­ney Robin Hen­ley.

Smith cited Green’s prior con­vic­tions for leav­ing the scene of an ac­ci­dent and flee­ing from po­lice as com­pelling fac­tors in sen­tenc­ing him to a pe­riod of in­car­cer­a­tion. Deputy Alex Cooper from the Of­fice of the Sher­iff Queen Anne’s County in­ves­ti­gated the case and tes­ti­fied at trial. Richard­son thanked Cooper for his dili­gence and pro­fes­sion­al­ism in han­dling the case.
