Glenn Blevins, a transient who frequented the Monterey Peninsula, has been sentenced to a term of four years in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation by the Honorable Judge Timothy Roberts.
The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office made the following announcement today:
On August 10, 2007, the defendant picked up a day laborer and they both went to Fort Ord in the defendant’s pick-up truck. Upon arrival, the defendant led the victim into an abandoned building. Once inside, the defendant attacked the victim without provocation. A series of punches and kicks were suddenly and ferociously landed upon the victim. The victim picked up a piece of metal tubing and was able to fend off the defendant who then fled in his truck. Two employees of an area business were able to describe the truck and its driver and also saw the victim emerge from Fort Ord. The victim was also able to describe his assailant and his vehicle.
On August 13, 2007, Marina Police officers responded to a road rage incident in which the defendant was involved. Marina officers recognized Mr. Blevins and noticed he matched the description given by the witnesses in the Fort Ord Assault.
The defendant made admissions at the scene regarding the Fort Ord incident and was taken into custody. Ultimately, the defendant pled no contest to assault and causing great bodily injury.
The defendant faced a maximum sentence of seven years in state prison. The court noted that this defendant had an extensive misdemeanor record dating back to the late 1990’s. The court also took the defendant’s mental health issues into consideration in deciding upon the four year term.
