Placerville Man Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Stalking and Criminal Threats
PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Lloyd Dylan Jones, 37, of Placerville was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in state prison for stalking and making criminal threats by the Honorable Michael Jones. The sentencing comes after a Placer County jury convicted Jones on June 27th, 2018, for numerous counts of Stalking in violation of section 646.9(a) of the Penal Code, Criminal Threats in violation of section 422(a) of the Penal Code, and Disobeying Protective Order in violation of section 273.6(a) of the Penal Code.
Evidence presented at trial showed that Mr. Jones had stalked and threatened three employees of Liberty Mutual Insurance Company. He did so notwithstanding the fact that he had a Temporary Restraining Order against him in place that prohibited the defendant from contacting the victims or possessing any firearms or ammunition. Jones was also convicted of multiple weapon violations involving weapons that were found at his home. The evidence presented at trial showed that during the execution of a search warrant of the defendant’s property, law enforcement located numerous firearms including two illegal assault rifles, twenty-three high capacity magazines, two ballistic vests, and an estimated 6,000 rounds of ammunition.
The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Tyson Page who was pleased that the jury and the Judge recognized the dangerousness of Mr. Jones. Paige praised the courage of the victims to come forward and testify against Jones in the case. “It was scary enough that Jones stalked and threatened these victims but to do it while possessing an arsenal of weapons is horrifying. The courage of these victims and quick response of law enforcement undoubtedly prevented a tragedy.”
