Several people were sentenced in the Starke Circuit Court yesterday, among them Kyle Bobb, who pleaded guilty to Burglary as a Class B felony and Samuel Singleton, who admitted to a variety of charges spanning four cases in the court.

Bobb pleaded guilty to Burglary in March and was sentenced yesterday to eight years in the Department of Corrections with two years suspended to be served on probation. He was arrested after breaking into a woman’s home and stealing a wooden box containing stainless silverware, a gold clover-shaped broach, three small perfume bottles, one larger perfume bottle, and costume jewelry.

Meanwhile, Singleton pleaded guilty in March to three counts of Theft as Class D felonies in three separate cases, as well as Receiving Stolen Property as a Class D felony and Possession of Marijuana as a Class A misdemeanor.

Singleton was sentenced to a total of 79 months in the Department of Corrections for the five charges to which he pleaded guilty. None of that sentence was suspended and because of his history as a substance abuser, the court recommends that he complete the CLIFF or GRIP program. His charges of Theft stem from incidents throughout 2012 when he stole a gun, cell phone, television, computer, and monitor from different people in the county. A no-contact order with the victim of one of his theft convictions will remain in effect throughout his sentence.
