Terrell Bradley sentenced to one year in state prison in plea deal
September 26, 2023
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Terrell Marquis Bradley, 32, has been sentenced to one year and seven days in state prison following a plea agreement on three of the seven charges that were originally listed on his arrest report. Bradley lost an eye during a K-9 apprehension after running from a Gainesville Police Department officer on July 10, 2022.
Bradley’s car was pulled over on the night of July 10, and the officer asked him to step out of his vehicle after he reportedly saw marijuana in plain view. After Bradley got out, the officer attempted to pull his arms behind him, and Bradley allegedly elbowed the officer and ran. A GPD K-9 team responded to search for him and eventually found him behind bushes, where the K-9 bit his hand and head while apprehending him; Bradley lost an eye during the apprehension, leading to several City Commission and community meetings on K-9 policies and resignations from the K-9 unit.
A search of Bradley’s vehicle reportedly produced a Glock pistol under the driver’s seat that had been reported stolen, along with a separate magazine. Bradley was originally charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, resisting an officer without violence, battery on an officer, grand theft of a firearm, carrying a concealed firearm without a permit, and two counts of possession of a firearm or ammunition by a convicted felon.
Formal charges of resisting an officer without violence, battery on an officer, carrying a concealed firearm, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon were filed on September 7, 2022.
In the plea agreement accepted today by Judge David Kreider, Bradley entered a plea of nolo contendere to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, battery on an officer, and resisting an officer without violence; the charge of carrying a concealed firearm was dropped as part of the agreement. Britanee Prince was the prosecutor on the case.
The agreement states that the maximum sentence for the charges is 21 years in state prison.
Bradley was adjudicated guilty on all charges and has been sentenced to one year and one week in state prison, with credit for two days served. He was booked into the Alachua County Jail today to begin serving the sentence.
