Thursday, February 14, 2013
A Jefferson City man was sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to an amended charge in a June 2012 burglary case.
Cori Leavell, 18, of 1209 W. Main St., pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property.
He had been charged with second-degree burglary and felony stealing.
Court documents say the burglary occurred at Leavell’s residence.
A resident reported more than $4,000 in items had been taken.
A witness said she saw three black males, one being Leavell, run to a residence in 1300 block of West High Street carrying the stolen items.
The owner of the West High residence gave officers permission to search the structure.
Televisions, a gaming system and other items taken from the home on West Main were found.
Also stolen was a .380-caliber handgun that was never recovered.
A sawed-off, 20-gauge shotgun was recovered, but none of the suspects admitted to owning it.
