Brunswick Man Convicted of Aggravated Assault
State v. Gordon Glenn Spurlock

April 17, 2023

District Attorney Keith Higgins announces that Gordon Glenn Spurlock, 53, of Brunswick, was convicted of two counts of Felony Aggravated Assault, following a jury trial held on May 16, 2023.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on August 9, 2022. On that date, Glynn County Police Department officers responded to a call from a residence in the Pine Meadows subdivision in Brunswick. Upon arrival, the officers determined that Spurlock, a neighbor of the victims, had accosted the victim and her daughter and pointed a gun at them as the victim was attempting to drive her daughter to school.

As the victim and her daughter were in their vehicle attempting to leave their residence, Spurlock confronted them at the end of their driveway. He insisted that the vehicle they were in was his and pointed a gun at them demanding that the vehicle be returned to him. When the police arrived, Spurlock was still acting confrontational and insisted the vehicle was his and that he was with the FBI. Neither allegation was true. An officer met with Spurlock’s mother, who allowed him to search her home where Spurlock also lived. A gun was located in the home, and was identified by the victims as the weapon that was pointed at them. Spurlock was arrested and charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault.

The trial, held on May 16, 2023, in Glynn County Superior Court, was prosecuted by Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Presley and Assistant District Attorney Taylor Herron, and presided over by Superior Court Judge Stephen D. Kelley. Spurlock was found guilty of both counts of Aggravated Assault and was sentenced by Judge Kelley to 20 years in the Department of Corrections, with the first 10 years in confinement and the remainder on probation. Spurlock was also banished from Glynn County and was ordered to undergo mental health treatment while incarcerated with follow-up treatment at the discretion of his probation officer upon release.
