On September 19, 2017, a Wicomico County jury convicted Michael Wayne Carey, age 38, no fixed address, of one count of Robbery and one count of Theft-$1000 to under $10,000.

This conviction stems from Carey robbing the Bank of Delmarva on Route 13 in Delmar, Maryland on September 30, 2016. Carey was arrested in Greenwood, Delaware on October 1, 2016. Carey was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment, all suspended except 5 years of active incarceration. Carey was previously convicted of the September 26, 2016 robbery of First Shore Federal Bank on Mt. Hermon Road in Salisbury, for which he received a sentence of 15 years active incarceration. These two sentences will be served consecutively.

Wicomico County State’s Attorney Ella Disharoon commended the combined efforts of Corporal Thomas Esham of the Delmar Police Department, Detective Brandon Caton of the Salisbury Police Department, and many other officers and community members involved in the investigation. Mrs. Disharoon also thanked Assistant State’s Attorney James “Bo” McAllister, who prosecuted the cases.

They have always done it I assume, but why bother giving anyone a sentence and then suspending it? To hold it over their head? When they screw up again they give him the rest of the sentence?

If you are going to give him 15 years, GIVE HIM 15 YEARS. If you want him to have 5 years give him 5 years.

I realize judges might be trying to be fair or whatever but ............I dunno.

Looks like he is doing 20 years incarcerated with another 10 suspended when he gets out.
