Man gets six-year prison term for burglary

September 26, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Westminster man was sentenced yesterday to six years in prison after he was convicted of burglary, theft and assault in five cases.

Carroll County Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. imposed a 20-year term for first-degree burglary on Nicholas R. Stonesifer, 22, of the 600 block of Littlestown Pike before suspending all but six years and recommending the defendant for boot camp, court records show.

The crimes, including incidents in Hampstead, Eldersburg and Westminster, occurred between February and May, when Stonesifer was arrested after state police linked him to stolen items he had pawned in Baltimore County, court records show.

Stonesifer was also convicted of two counts of theft, one count of burglary and one count of assault.

He will serve prison terms for those convictions concurrently with the burglary sentence.
