A Plymouth man was sentenced after pleading guilty to a charge of burglary and several other unrelated charges in a hearing in Marshall County Superior Court 1 on Thursday.
Mikal Lopez, 23, admitted that he broke into a home on Pennsylvania Avenue on Jan. 4, 2012 and stole a video game system with controllers, a video game and a dish full of coins. On Jan. 25 of this year, Lopez was arrested after traffic stop was conducted where officers found him in possession of a quantity of marijuana and a drug for which Lopez did not have a valid prescription. It was also learned that Lopez never obtained a driver’s license.
Judge Robert O. Bowen accepted the plea agreement between the defense and the state which called for a ten year sentence on the charge of burglary with four years suspended, one year incarceration on the possession of marijuana charge and 60 days on the driving offense. All of the sentences would run concurrently, or at the same time.
