Burglar sentenced to prison

NORWICH – A convicted Norwich burglar who stole children’s DVDs was sentenced to eight years in prison Friday.

Terry L. Sturdevant Jr., 21, Norwich, was found guilty of unlawfully entering the Adams Street home of a single mother in the City of Norwich.



After the day-long trial where the only witness for the defense was the defendant himself, the jury convicted Sturdevant of felony burglary after 21 minutes of deliberations.

First Assistant District Attorney Stephen M. Dunshee said Sturdevant took a DVD and CD player along with nine children’s DVDs, including Barbie and Disney movies that belonged to the victim’s six-year-old daughter, in the broad daylight burglary.
