Court Records: Man Punches, Threatens To Kill AUSA

The son of a criminal defendant allegedly threatened to kill, and then punched, a Maryland Assistant U.S. Attorney last week during a sentencing hearing for the defendant’s mother at the Greenbelt, Md., federal courthouse, according to court documents.

Raymond V. Jones allegedly called AUSA James Crowell a “coward” and “mother f_cker” and then threatened to kill the prosecutor, before he jumped over the barrier dividing the gallery and the courtroom well and hit Crowell in the head on Nov. 16, according to court documents. Crowell’s head was swollen after the alleged attack, the court records said.

Jones was charged with assaulting a federal officer. He could spend as much as a year in prison and face a fine of up to $100,000. He was released to his grandmother’s custody, according to a court order.

Jennifer McCall, Jones’ mother, was sentenced to 12 1/2 years and ordered to pay almost $17 million for her role in a mortgage fraud scheme, according to court documents. Before her son allegedly made his threats, McCall yelled out that the court proceedings against her were “disgusting” and “nasty,” and then accused Crowell of lying, the court records said.

A spokesperson for the Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to comment.

The Washington Examiner first reported on the story here.
