Man Accused Of More Than A Dozen Break-Ins Arrested In Central Florida


According to a report from ClickOrlando, a man named Corionn Rodman Jones-Bentley has been arrested in connection with more than a dozen break-ins in Osceola County. Law enforcement officials state that Mr. Jones-Bentley was targeting vacation rental properties. He is now facing five separate criminal charges. Here, our Orlando criminal defense attorney discusses the specific charges filed in this case.

A Wide Range of Criminal Charges Filed Against Defendant 

Recently, there was a string of break-ins at vacation rental properties in Osceola County. Police and prosecutors believe that Corionn Rodman Jones-Bentley is the individual who is responsible. The Central Florida man is now facing multiple criminal charges, including:

  • Occupied Burglary: Occupied burglary is a very serious felony criminal charge in Florida. The state imposes more strict criminal penalties when a person breaks and enters into a dwelling which is actively occupied by another person.
  • Unoccupied Burglary: Unoccupied burglary occurs when a person breaks and enters into a dwelling that is not currently inhabited. It is less serious offense than occupied burglary, but it is still a significant criminal charge that can carry significant jail time.
  • Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer: The defendant in this case is charged with battery on a law enforcement officer. Any unlawful touching of a police officer is a third degree felony offense in Florida. It carries a maximum penalty of up to five years in prison.
  • Violation of Probation: The defendant in the Osceola County break-ins is also charged with violation of probation. A violation of the probation charge must be taken seriously. The charge itself not only carries criminal penalties, it can lead to an immediate revocation of a person’s existing probation.
  • Loitering and Prowling: Finally, the defendant is facing a loitering and prowling charge. This is a commonly misunderstood criminal charge. Under Florida law (Florida Statutes § 856.021), “it is unlawful for any person to loiter or prowl in a place, at a time or in a manner not usual for law-abiding individuals.” It is a second degree misdemeanor offense that can carry jail time. Loitering and prowling charges are highly fact specific cases. Police and prosecutors may tack on this charge when it is not truly warranted by the situation. 

It is not uncommon for police and prosecutors to file a number of different criminal charges against the same defendant after an arrest. Cases with multiple, overlapping criminal charges are especially complex. Defendants who find themselves in this situation need experienced legal representation.
