Man jailed, accused of terroristic threats against school, family, police

ROCKLAND — A judge ordered an 18-year-old Washington man held on $5,000 cash bail after the suspect was accused of threatening to kill his grandparents.

Conrad Freeman was arrested on Wednesday, the same day he was served a protection from harassment notice that barred him from Medomak Valley High School in Waldoboro where police said he threatened to harm students and administrators.

Freeman made his initial appearance Friday afternoon in Rockland District Court on charges of domestic violence terrorizing and violating a condition of release.

Freeman also had been arrested last month for terrorizing, criminal threatening and criminal trespass at the school, according to Assistant District Attorney Jeffrey Baroody.

According to an affidavit filed in court by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Freeman became agitated when officers served him with the harassment notice on Wednesday.

The affidavit stated that Freeman then told his grandparents that he would be getting some guns and would come back and kill them, and they would not know when to expect it to happen. He also said that the order served on him by police would not stop him.

Freeman also said that he had a “bullet for every cop because a good cop was a dead cop,” according to the affidavit.

Freeman was later located in Rockland, arrested for the new threats and taken to the Knox County Jail in Rockland. The police report does not mention any weapons being found.

Defense attorney William Pagnano said at Friday’s hearing that he believes a mental examination has been requested by Freeman’s attorney in the Lincoln County case. Pagnano asked for $800 cash bail, saying that is all the teenager could raise. Baroody asked for $5,000 cash bail, saying there was a real risk to public safety. Baroody said there also was a motion being filed in Lincoln County to revoke Freeman’s bail from the charges at MVHS.

Judge Patricia Worth said she was concerned about the terroristic nature of Freeman’s threats, including to students at MVHS and his grandparents. She set the bail at $5,000 cash.

WOW

A piece of paper certainly isn't going to keep this big mouth 18 year old from doing what he wants. Sounds like this guy should be locked up, but not in jail. He obviously has issues and needs to talk to someone. Hope he gets the help before someone is killed..
