According to court documents, President Judge James G. Arner will sentence 25-year-old Cory Allen Boyle, of Sligo, at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 24.

Court documents indicate Boyle pleaded guilty to one first-degree misdemeanor count of terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another and one second-degree misdemeanor count of resisting arrest/other law enforcement on March 27, 2019.

As a result of the plea agreement, the following charges were dismissed:

– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2
– Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Misdemeanor 2
– Institutional Vandalism Personal Property, Misdemeanor 2
– Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

Boyle remains lodged in the Clarion County Jail on $10,000.00 monetary bail, according to court documents.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, around 10:17 p.m. on February 18, Troopers MacTavish and Gray, of PSP Clarion, were dispatched to an apartment on Bald Eagle Street in Sligo Borough, Clarion County, for a report of an inactive domestic dispute.

When the officers arrived at the scene, Crystal Crissman was observed running into her apartment screaming and acting erratically. She stated that “Cory” hurt her before flinging herself to the ground and screaming. She had bruises on her neck and chest, according to to the complaint.

Crissman stated that she was in an altercation with Cory Boyle.

At this time, a small child yelled from the living room to get Trooper MacTavish’s attention and said he was afraid.

The child stated, “They were fighting really bad, and I am scared,” the complaint indicates.

Trooper MacTavish observed Boyle laying on the ground with a bloody, fat lip. He stood up and began screaming at Trooper MacTavish and walking in her direction. Trooper MacTavish attempted to place Boyle in handcuffs, and he failed to comply and attempted to fight with her. He needed to be physically restrained on the ground. As Troopers MacTavish and Gray were handcuffing Boyle, he allegedly stated he was trying to grab Trooper Gray’s gun so he could shoot them, according to the complaint.

While officers were placing Boyle under arrest, Crissman allegedly attempted to intervene physically and failed to listen to a command to stay in the other room, the complaint states.

Boyle yelled to Crissman that “his lip was bloody because he was being placed under arrest.” Crissman yelled back at him saying “No, it’s because I smacked you in the face,” according to the complaint.

Crissman was also placed under arrest.

According to the complaint, there were five children in the home at the time of the altercation.

Both individuals were arraigned at 1:15 a.m. on February 19 in Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller’s office.

Court documents indicate the following charges against Crissman were withdrawn on Tuesday, March 12:

– Obstruct Administration Law/Other Govt Functions, Misdemeanor 2
– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2

One summary count of Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact was moved to non-traffic court.
