Salisbury man sentenced for attempted armed robbery and assault
SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man who was convicted of attempted armed robbery, assault, and other charges last month learned his fate in court last week.
33-year-old Frank Feather III was sentenced to five years behind bars without the possibility of parole. Due to the seriousness of the offense and Feather’s criminal history, the Maryland sentencing guidelines recommended an active sentence between 9 and 14 years. The Office of the State’s Attorney requested a sentence above the guidelines of 25 years. At the time of this offense, Feather was on parole for a 2004 conviction for second degree burglary, as well as another conviction for conspiracy to commit armed robbery from that same year.
Officials say this sentence will be consecutive to any sentence imposed by the Parole Commission on Feather’s violation.
On January 27th, Feather was convicted of attempted armed robbery, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment, attempted theft less than $1000, handgun and loaded handgun on person, firearm use in the commission of a felony or violent crime, illegal possession of a regulated firearm, and firearm possession with a felony conviction. These charges came after Feather tried to rob a victim at gunpoint in April of 2019.
