Former major of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office convicted of abusive sexual contact with a minor
MIAMI – On Nov. 1, a New York man was sentenced to 35 years in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for surveilling and later shooting a victim from point-blank range.
Julian Jimenez, 27, of New York, flew down from New York to Miami to kill the victim. Once Jimenez arrived in Miami, he surveilled his victim at the victim’s home and business. After four days of surveillance, Jimenez entered his victim’s residential community wearing a mask, gloves and holding a firearm. While the victim was in his vehicle about to pull into his garage, Jimenez ran up behind him and started shooting. Jimenez fired eight rounds at the victim. The victim survived but was hit three times and needed surgery to remove the projectiles left inside his body.
The sentence comes after Jimenez’s guilty plea in August. A restitution hearing is scheduled on Jan. 30, 2024.
U.S. Attorney Markenzy Lapointe for the Southern District of Florida and Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey B. Veltri of FBI, Miami Field Office, announced the sentence imposed by U.S. District Judge Roy K. Altman.
FBI Miami’s Violent Crimes and Fugitive Task Force investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Abbie D. Waxman, Michael E. Gilfarb and Katherine W. Guthrie prosecuted it.
