NORWICH – Kevin Begeal’s public defender Alan Gordon says his client signed a statement that admitted his guilt in a rash of Norwich burglaries that took place at the end of last week. Begeal, 21, was arrested Sunday and charged with a litany of crimes including several felonies and nearly twice as many misdemeanors.
After his arrest by Norwich City Police, Begeal gave a statement indicating his involvement in a number of the burglaries. “He signed a statement admitting involvement in Norwich,” said Gordon. Begeal, who is already on parole for crimes he committed as a youthful offender, is not eligible for bail even if he could pay the $73,000 he is currently being held on. “It might as well be a million,” said Gordon.
