Annapolis, MD -- Anne Arundel County State's Attorney Wes Adams announced today that Isaac J. Perrodin, 38, of Millersville, was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge Laura S. Kiessling to 19 years in prison for first degree assault, reckless endangerment, and use of a firearm in commission of a crime of violence.

"Isaac Perrodin's reckless behavior put three innocent victims in serious danger and created a war zone in their own home," said Anne Arundel County State's Attorney Wes Adams. "This form of violence is particularly insidious, and will not be tolerated in our county."

On March 4, 2017, Isaac Perrodin became increasingly irate as he searched his home for the keys to his vehicle. While searching, Perrodin went upstairs, retrieved a shotgun, and yelled for his wife.When she arrived upstairs, Perrodin pointed the gun at her before firing a shot into the ground.

Fearing for their safety, the victim locked herself and her two children in a bedroom. As Perrodin continued to roam the house, possibly still in possession of the shotgun, the victim contacted 911.

Upon arrival, police set up a perimeter and began attempting to make contact with Perrodin. After approximately one hour, Perrodin surrendered himself to police.

Perrodin pleaded guilty to first degree assault, reckless endangerment, and use of a firearm in commission of a crime of violence on August 4, 2017. He was sentenced to 50 years suspend all but 19 years of active incarceration, and 5 years of supervised probation upon release.

Judge Laura S. Kiessling presided over the case. Assistant State's Attorney Mary Setzer prosecuted the case on behalf of the citizens of Anne Arundel County.
