Michael Lydon Strong, 43, was found guilty of aggravated stalking and disorderly conduct by Cobb District Attorney Flynn D. Broady Jr., announced today. Superior Court Judge Jason D. Marbutt sentenced Strong to 10 years in prison.

The case stemmed from incidents dating back to September 21, 2020, when the victim and her 13-year-old son sought a protection order against Strong, who was the victim’s live-in boyfriend at the time. Testimony revealed that Strong exhibited fits of rage, yelling, throwing objects, and damaging property. The victim and her son testified to escalating incidents of fear and intimidation.

Despite a Family Violence Ex Parte Protection Order issued on September 21, 2020, Strong violated its terms by unlawfully entering the victim’s residence on October 12, 2020. The victim’s son bravely called 911 after Strong broke into their bedroom while they slept.

Following a trial, a 12-person jury found Strong guilty on April 25, 2024. “The jury’s decision highlights our office’s dedication to protecting and advocating for victims of domestic violence,” said District Attorney Flynn D. Broady Jr.

Prosecutors Holly Morgan and Dallas Cox represented the state, while the defendant was represented by Brian A. Hobbs.
