Former University of Jamestown student to serve 65 days for terrorizing

JAMESTOWN — 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, Calif., and now lives in Valley City, was found guilty of terrorizing by a 12-person jury in Southeast District Court on 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 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 Wednesday by Judge Thomas E. Merrick, Flores will not be entitled to work release, and the court waived all fines and fees.

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