October 2, 2019 - Shivon PEREZ Sentenced to 17.5 Years for Kidnapping, Attempted Murder, and Arson

Today (Oct 2), Judge Marlene Alva sentenced Shivon PEREZ (39) to 17.58 years in prison for the Kidnapping (F1), Attempted Murder (F1), and Arson (F1) of a former boyfriend Bradley Adkins (43).

On April 1, 2018, PEREZ invited her then ex-boyfriend Adkins to her home for Easter dinner and later asked him to fix a leaking pipe in her bathroom. While making the repair Adkins was confronted by an angry PEREZ who sprayed him with gasoline and set him on fire. Perez then locked the front door to prevent Adkins escape, and sprayed more gasoline on the floor while he was attempting to extinguish his burning clothing.

PEREZ entered a plea of No Contest to the Court on August 9, 2019. During a sentencing hearing taking place today, the Court heard an impact statement from Bradley Adkins, and testimony from Lt. Anthony Van Cleave of the Altamonte Springs Police Department. Attorney's for PEREZ argued for a downward departure citing mental health issues, and other factors. Judge Alva did not find sufficient justification and sentenced PEREZ to 17.58 years for each of the three felony counts, followed by 20 years of supervised probation for count 1, and 10 years of supervised probation for counts 2 & 3. All sentences to be served concurrently.

PEREZ was ordered to have no contact with the victim, no return to the location of the fire, mental health evaluation and treatment, and restitution to Victim Crime Compensation, Cost of Investigation, Cost of Prosecution, and Court Costs.

PEREZ was ordered held in custody and transfered to the Florida Department of Corrections to begin serving her sentence.
