Taneytown teen draws 6-month term

June 13, 1996

A Taneytown teen-ager was sentenced to three years in prison yesterday after he was convicted of beating a man and taking his wallet and radio last fall, court records showed.

Christian Robert Nawrocki, 18, of the 100 block of Grand Drive pleaded not guilty but agreed to the prosecutor's statement of facts. In return, and under a plea agreement, all but six months of the sentence was suspended.

Nawrocki was ordered held at the Carroll County Detention Center, where he will be eligible for work release.

Prosecutors said Nawrocki and two juveniles beat and robbed the victim about 10: 30 p.m. Oct. 1, 1995, on Village Drive in Taneytown.

Taneytown police learned that a youth was bragging about the crime at Nawrocki's residence. Upon confronting Nawrocki, police said he confessed to being present, but denied robbing the man.

Nawrocki then offered to return $10, his share of the take, and was arrested, police said.

Nawrocki was ordered to repay the victim $53 in restitution upon being released, plus $20 for the wallet during the first 180 days of a three-year supervised probationary period, court records showed.

The boys involved were charged as juveniles, police said.
