Co-Defendants Sentenced for First-Degree Assault After Brutal Attack on Victim in Waldorf

September 13, 2019

Tony Covington, State’s Attorney for Charles County, announced that on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, Charles County Circuit Court Judge Amy J. Bragunier sentenced Emanuel Malik Anthony Nugent, 22 of Waldorf, to 25 years with all but 18 years suspended to be served at the Division of Corrections for the First-Degree Assault of Timothy Dalton. After Nugent’s sentencing, Judge Bragunier sentenced co-defendant Catrell Beshaun Yates, 27 of Waldorf, to 25 years with all but 13 years suspended to be served at the Division of Corrections.

Both Nugent and Yates each previously tendered guilty pleas to First-Degree Assault in Charles County Circuit Court.

On August 30, 2018, officers responded to the 12800 block of Leman Lane in Waldorf for the report of an assault. Upon arrival, officers found victim Dalton suffering with critical injuries. Due to the serious nature of his injuries, Dalton was transported by helicopter to an area trauma center for treatment. At the hospital, it was discovered that the victim suffered a broken jaw, collapsed lung, as well as other extensive injuries. However, the victim survived the attack.

An investigation into the assault revealed that the victim was inside of his residence when Nugent contacted him and asked him to come outside. When the victim walked out, Nugent confronted him about money. The victim was then put into a vehicle and taken to Nugent’s residence, where co-defendant Yates was located. At the residence, the victim was brutally assaulted with a metal jack pole and a knife, as well as punched and kicked numerous times by Nugent and Yates. After the assault, the victim was placed back into a vehicle and was dumped off at an area close to his residence. Concerned citizens contacted the Charles County Sheriff’s Office and both police and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene.

During sentencing, Assistant State’s Attorney John A. Stackhouse indicated to the judge, “…the damage [to the victim] is unbelievable. I’ve been doing this for a long time and I’ll never understand how people can victimize other people like this. The victim was beaten to within an inch of his life.” He furthered stated that the assault “is something that will affect the victim for the rest of his life.”

Both Nugent and Yates will be placed on supervised probation for 5 years upon their release from prison.

    Just shows the decline of Waldorf and the surrounding area, but the real sad thing it’s only going to get worse, just like today (09/14) 2 stabbings in Waldorf.

    I’d be surprised if you added their IQ’s together and got a sum of more than 190. Garbage culture on display again. Start raising your kids right folks or you’ll end up with bums like these. They’re all too common in the “community” they grew up in. If single “baby mama” households and drug dealing is the norm then your community and culture is garbage and it’s time to change.

      Thanks Joe.

      We will consider your offer – but I doubt anything will improve.

      See – we like the welfare socialism and section 8 lifestyle.

      And the baby-mommas are loose and don’t mind if we knock e m up long as we share the Colt-45, weed, and MD-2020.

      Nice retort. Why don’t you prove him wrong with actual facts?

      • JacobSingle baby mama trash raising trashy kids, is a consequence of having divorce and custody decisions made by crooked judges like Bragunier. on September 16, 2019 at 6:32 pm

        “Actual facts” don’t matter in courtrooms of crooked judges like those in La Plata.

        Must be tough reading what I typed, looking at your community, and realizing it’s ALL 100% TRUE. Otherwise Baltimore, DC, Northeast Philly, Chicago, Detroit, Flint, St. Louis, etc etc wouldn’t be places places where we bury or cremate young Black Men at an alarming rate because other young Black Men MURDERED THEM. The life expectancy in in Baltimore County is roughly 11 years lower than Garrett or Allegheny County. This is despite Baltimore having greater funding for Health Care and Social Services. Hmmmm……I wonder why that is? Maybe some day you’ll stop being an apologist and start speaking truth.

    How about we invest our tax dollars in training programs?? So quick to judge…and threaten. Glad your life is all fine and dandy

    • Queen of the Iron Throne on September 16, 2019 at 10:27 am

      We already do that. It’s called high school and college or maybe even trade school!

    • Anonymous on September 16, 2019 at 1:04 pm

      Those programs already exist and aren’t being utilized. How many of my dollars are going to those that aren’t willing to help themselves? My life is fine and dandy because I busted my ass to get where I’m at.
