A Pine Bluff man who is currently in prison pleaded guilty to new allegations related to a reported home invasion that resulted in the death of one of the suspects in 2016. Harold T. Santiago Falcon, now 24, pleaded guilty to one count of robbery, one count of residential burglary and one count of manslaughter in connection with an incident on July 12, 2016, at Southeast Apartments at 1100 E. 36th Ave.


According to police, Falcon, Loranda Crutchfield and a third man went to the apartments with the intention of robbing someone. Crutchfield, 35, knocked on the door of one of the apartments and when it was opened, Crutchfield hit the resident in the head with a handgun and rushed into the apartment, where he dropped the gun. Both he and the apartment resident went to the floor in an attempt to get the gun; during the struggle, Crutchfield was shot and killed.


In a deal worked out with prosecutors and his attorney from the Public Defender’s Office, Crutchfield was sentenced to 20 years in prison for robbery, reduced from aggravated robbery, five years for burglary, and 10 years for manslaughter, with the sentences to run concurrently with each other and with a sentence he is currently serving for violating conditions of his probation on one count of second-degree sexual assault that occurred in 2013 and one count failure to register as a sex offender in 2016.
