Teen given 18 months in burglaries

A Hampstead teen-ager was sentenced to 18 months in the Carroll County Detention Center yesterday after pleading guilty in Circuit Court to three burglary charges.

Under a plea arrangement, George W. Knisley IV, 18, of the 38000 block of Shiloh Road agreed not to seek credit for the more than five months he had spent in the county jail since he was arrested in May.

Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. suspended all but 18 months of the concurrent 10-year sentences, and prosecutors dropped multiple theft charges in return for restitution.

Knisley will be placed on five years of probation when he is released and must pay restitution of $1,665 and continue drug counseling.

Knisley was granted probation before judgment on a charge of resisting arrest. Prosecutors said Knisley jumped out a second-story window and led police on a 45-minute chase, then struggled with officers who found him hiding in the bed of a pickup truck in Manchester May 28.
