Jared Parkey was twice shot on U.S. 1 by ex-Flagler Beach cop Nathaniel Juratovac last year. Juratovac is serving a 4-year prison sentence. Parkey had faced a felony charge and prison time before his plea.
The incident took place at 3:17 p.m. near mile marker 290, about a mile north of the intersection with Palm Coast Parkway, in the southbound lanes. The woman’s injury are not life-threatening.
Winston Slaughter, a 21-year-old resident of 3 Farragut Drive in Palm Coast, is accused of vandalizing the vehicles of a neighbor after a violent confrontation that left him lacerated.
When Judge J. Michael Traynor sentenced Nathaniel Juratovac to four years in prison for the attempted murder of Flagler County firefighter Jared Parkey last week, the judge managed to blame both men for the violent incident that led them to the courtroom, a stunning and immoral leveling of blame in a state that too easily excuses gun violence.
Nathaniel Juratovac, the 41-year-old ex-Flagler Beach cop who twice shot an unarmed Flagler County firefighter in what was then termed a road-rage incident by the side of U.S. 1 was sentenced this afternoon to 51 months in prison in a plea agreement. Had he been convicted at trial, he could have faced up to 25 years in prison on the attempted murder charge.
Edward Smith, who had two 16-year-old girls in his car, allegedly waved a 9mm Hi-Point rifle at occupants of another car during a verbal smackdown on Palm Coast Parkway Wednesday afternoon.
