CANTON A two-time felon will serve state prison time in connection with a September burglary in the village.
Justin C. Scovil, 27, Norwood, was sentenced Thursday in St. Lawrence County Court to a term of two-and-a-half to five years, to be served concurrently with a 20-to-60 month sentence for a probation violation.
Mr. Scovil pleaded guilty under superior court information last month to third-degree burglary, admitting that he unlawfully entered a friends Law Lane home on Sept. 28 and stole some jewelry.
That incident came seven months after Mr. Scovil was sentenced to five years probation for a previous third-degree grand larceny conviction.
Mr. Scovil confessed to stealing more than $3,000 worth of antiques from his grandmother in August 2009 and selling them.
Officials said he violated his probation in that case by failing to report as directed to his probation officer on multiple occasions between February and Sept. 14, failing to successfully complete treatment and not making any restitution payments.
County Judge Jerome J. Richards vacated Mr. Scovils probation.
