Delaware man sentenced in Barclay burglary, assault
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.
Firefighters and bomb technicians responded to a residence on Duhamel Corner Road Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016, after police say they found what appeared to be explosives and evidence of a drug lab.
