Flores to serve 65 days for terrorizing

A former University of Jamestown student will serve 65 days in the Stutsman County Correctional Center for terrorizing.

Robert Flores, 19, who is originally from Southgate, California, and is now residing in Valley City, was found guilty of terrorizing by a 12-person jury in Southeast District Court in Jamestown April 22. He was sentenced Tuesday.

Flores was accused of threatening to kill and drink the blood of three University of Jamestown students in satanic rituals. The alleged threats resulted in the university being placed on lockdown for about an hour on Nov. 7.

Flores was sentenced to 72 days, with credit given for seven days served. According to the written judgment signed by Judge Thomas E. Merrick Wednesday, Flores will not be entitled to work release, and the court waived all fines and fees. Flores will also keep the right to vote and hold any future public office, except during his time in jail. No probation was ordered.

Terrorizing is a Class C felony with a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
