One suspect given eight months after stealing guns and jewelry
Placeholder Image

A pair who burglarized a Graham Road home and stole guns and jewelry were sentenced, one suspect avoiding jail while the other will serve over eight months.
Getting the least of the deal on charges of aggravated burglary and theft over $1,000 was Nolan Hillis. He was granted a three-year judicial diversion and must perform 60 hours public service work and make $2,393 restitution along with his co-defendant, Courtney Martin, for aggravated burglary. The diversion means Hillis may have his criminal record erased provided he gets into no further trouble while on probation.
Meanwhile, Martin received a harsher sentence for the same crime, ordered to serve 250 days of a four-year sentence and perform 40 hours community service work, along with paying his part of the restitution to the victim.
The defendants were hit with the felony charges for the break-in of a residence where five guns along with a gaming system and video game system were stolen. The items were worth a combined $2,393, amounting to the total the suspects will owe the victim combined.
