Mug shot of FarrisState Attorney Ginger Bowden Madden announces that Circuit Court Judge Kelvin Wells sentenced Timothy Lee Farris on May 17, 2022, to twenty-five years in Florida’s Department of Corrections, including a ten-year minimum mandatory sentence, for Burglary of a Dwelling while Armed with a Firearm, and five years in Florida’s Department of Corrections concurrent for Possession of Methamphetamine.  A Walton County jury found Farris guilty of these charges on March 10, 2022.

The charges arose from an incident that occurred on December 12, 2020, at a house on Whip Poor Will Lane in Walton County.  The victim was in his yard working on a vehicle when Farris threatened the victim from the neighbor’s property.  Farris was acting erratic and gave the victim cause for concern, so the victim drew a pistol and told Farris to leave the property.  Farris left, but returned with a rifle, and fired several rounds.  The victim retreated into his home and called 911.  Farris broke out the glass in the victim’s back door with the rifle and aimed it through the metal door.  A male came and got Farris from the victim’s home, and they left in a truck.  When law enforcement stopped the truck, Farris fled from the passenger seat and took off running into the woods, but he was ultimately apprehended.  Law enforcement found the rifle in the bed of the truck that Farris fled from, and they found a bag of methamphetamine and a syringe on Farris.

Farris had a prior felony conviction for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and received a prison sentence, as well as Fleeing and Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement, Tampering with evidence, and numerous prior misdemeanor charges.

The investigation and arrest were conducted by the Walton County Sheriff’s Office.  Assistant State Attorney Angela Liles prosecuted this case at Sentencing.
