Other defendants face prison time for child pornography, assault, weapons, and drug charges

Radee Prince, convicted by a Superior Court jury in May of Attempted Manslaughter (Attempted Murder Under Extreme Emotional Distress), 2 counts of Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Reckless Endangering First Degree, Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon, and Resisting Arrest was sentenced to 40 years in prison. Deputy Attorneys General Mark Denney and Erika Flaschner secured the sentence for Prince, 38, of Wilmington. In October 2017, Prince went to the auto sales business owned by 35-year-old Rashan Jason Baul in the 2800 block of Northeast Boulevard and shot Baul several times, including once in the face. Prince was arrested later that evening in Glasgow after a foot chase with police, during which Prince discarded a gun. Prince, who still faces three counts of Murder First Degree in Maryland in connection with a mass shooting at his former workplace, was sentenced by a Superior Court judge to 40 years in prison, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release then 2 years of probation.

A 34-year-old Smyrna man faces at least 31 years in prison after pleading guilty to 3 counts of Dealing in Child Pornography, one count of Dangerous Crime Against a Child and one count of Unlawful Sexual Contact First Degree. In September 2017, an online chatroom reported that one of its users uploaded an image of child pornography. A month later, Skype reported that one of its users did the same. An investigation showed the IP addresses for the two users were the same, and led investigators to Joshua Gladden. Further investigation uncovered information about Gladden sexually abusing two minor children. A Superior Court judge will sentence Gladden in September, between a minimum sentence of 31 years and a maximum of life in prison. The case was investigated by the Child Predator Task Force with assistance from social worker Lorraine Freese.

A Superior Court judge sentenced a New Castle man to 13 years in prison to assault and weapons charges. Deputy Attorney General Phillip Casale secured the sentence against 24-year-old Andre Queen. In May 2017, New Castle County Police responded to reports of a shooting in the 200 block of Keller Beyer Road in the Bayview Manor neighborhood, and found a 20-year-old suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Police identified Queen as the suspect, and when they arrested him the following week, he was carrying a loaded firearm. Queen pled guilty earlier this month to Assault First Degree, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon. The judge sentenced Queen to 13 years in prison, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release, then 18 months of probation. Detective Jeffrey Sendek of the New Castle County Police Department was the Chief Investigating Officer, Courtney Cochran was the DOJ social worker, and Willie Santiago was the DOJ investigator.

A pair of home break-ins has led to a prison sentence for a Wilmington man. Deputy Attorney General William Leonard secured the sentence for 37-year-old Robert Ferguson. In June 2017, Robert Ferguson climbed through the window of a home in the 2700 block of Old Country Road in Newark, but fled the residence after the homeowner confronted him in the living room. Later the same day, Ferguson broke a basement window of a home in the 1500 block of Old Milltown Road in Mill Creek, and stole several items including camera equipment and jewelry. In March, Ferguson pled guilty to Burglary Second Degree, Burglary Third Degree, and Conspiracy Second Degree. A Superior Court judge sentenced Ferguson, now a habitual offender because of several previous burglary convictions, to 9 years in prison, followed by 3 months of either home confinement or work release, then 6 months of probation. Social worker Kristen Fluharty-Emory and paralegal Donna Lee assisted in securing this sentence.

A 30-year-old Smyrna man received a 7-year prison sentence for his April 2018 guilty plea to charges of Drug Dealing, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. Beginning in September 2016, officers from the Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit, the Dover Police Department Drugs/Vice/Organized Crime Unit, and the Drug Enforcement Administration, began an undercover investigation into Benjamin Greene selling heroin in the Dover area. During the investigation, police made several heroin buys from Greene. A Superior Court judge sentenced Greene to 7 years in prison, including the completion of the CREST Substance Abuse Program, followed by 6 months of work release then one year of probation. Deputy Attorneys General Gregory Babowal and Kathleen Dickerson prosecuted Greene.
