Jonathan Sharkey, 44, was once a proud vampire who ran for president and other public offices while leading the Vampyre Nation. Now, he has been arrested for allegedly threatening to torture and kill Judge David Certo.
This is not the first confrontation between the Vampyre Nation and the rest of the nation for Sharkey. (By the way, the bloodsuckers over at Vampyre Nation have their own competition for top blogs of the occult and are soliciting votes from the living, undead, and dead among us).
He was previously arrested on charges of stalking a teenage girl. He ultimately pleaded guilty to two counts of invasion of privacy and was ordered to attend mental health treatment. He also pleaded guilty to Escape, a Class D Felony, the day before his scheduled Jury Trial in Courtroom 9 of the Marion County Superior Court. (State v. Rocky Flash, 49F09-0508-FD-148312)
Now, the man sometimes called “Rocky Flash” allegedly threatened to beat, torture, impale, dismember, decapitate, and kill the wife and children of Judge David Certo, who is presiding over another case involving Sharkey. Notably, a librarian noticed him typing out the threats on a Speedway Public Library computer and called police. (I would be interested in how an employee was able to monitor such text).
Sharkey insists that he is only subject to the “vampire laws” — a point disproven by his criminal record. He has been jailed and again pleaded guilty to felony intimidation — with 884 days in jail. This might not be the ideal cellmate for most inmates.
