A man accused of felony terrorizing with a dangerous weapon will go to jail for a month following a plea deal reached Thursday at the Waldo Judicial Center.

Sean Floyd, 52, of Swanville pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of terrorizing, a misdemeanor, and was sentenced to one year in jail, with all but 30 days suspended.

In August 2018, after a verbal fight with a co-worker at Swan Lake Grocery and a negative performance review, Floyd claims he was fired.

He protested his dismissal by picketing the store, charging wrongful termination and alleging health safety violations. He also claimed the co-worker was harassing him.

Floyd began venting his frustrations by displaying large signs on his property just south of the grocery store and also through a YouTube channel he had created in conjunction with his interest in puppetry.

Assistant District Attorney William Entwisle had Waldo County Sheriff's Detective Jordan Tozier testify as a witness for the state.

Tozier said he investigated complaints from Swan Lake Grocery. Prior to obtaining an arrest warrant, he determined there were several threats of violence expressed in the videos on Floyd's YouTube channel.

Entwisle had the jury of six women and eight men watch three of the videos in their entirety, in which Floyd walks a fine line between threat and perceived threat.

"I would murder if it were legal for me to do so," he said in one of the videos.

He went on to tell his streaming online viewers he would like the store "firebombed," saying, "I want anyone possible to do damage."

In one rant, Floyd said, "…Let's say it were legal that being a horrible person was punishable by death, and the person you were horrible to gets to choose the manner of your execution … I would torture those motherf*****s until they died; or alternately I would take a handgun… and splatter their f****** brains all over the concrete.

"Give me a f****** Desert Eagle (a semi-automatic handgun) and the back of her f****** head and the legality to pull that trigger, I would not hesitate for a f****** second."

Roberta Kimball, a witness for the state, worked with Floyd in the deli at Swan Lake Grocery.

"He started taking breaks and leaving work to take care of his puppet show," she said. "He wasn't there to clean up at night."

On one occasion when Floyd did not clean up after his shift and left the kitchen "a mess," Kimball had pictures taken and showed them to management.

Closing manager Kelly Ward testified that Floyd was a "wonderful employee" until he received a "write-up." Ward said Floyd began yelling and "shaking his fist — it was intimidating."

Ward said he was aware of the videos and felt nervous because "I had never seen that side of Sean."

"I saw the guns above his head in the video," Ward said. "I heard him say my name… that he wanted to splatter my brains across the concrete."

Penny Ward, Kelly's mother, lives above the store and described Floyd as "warm and friendly" and "kind and a hard worker… (he) makes the best sandwiches in the world."

She said it "broke her heart" when she saw the video where Floyd said he wanted to "blow their brains out."

"What if one day, a crazy sees the video and says — I'm going to take care of that," she said. "If Sean decided to actually go through with this, I stand to lose three children that God gave me. Did I have sleepless nights — yes I did. It was like he (Floyd) was two different people."

The plea agreement stipulates Floyd will be on probation for one year following his release from prison, and he will be required to have a mental health evaluation and treatment.

Floyd is not allowed on the premises at Swan Lake Grocery and is prohibited from having any contact with the store's owner or several other employees, including through social media.
