NORWICH – A pair of convicted felons were sentenced to state prison in Chenango County Court Friday and both were chastised by Judge W. Howard Sullivan for their lack of remorse.
Anthony J. Pierce and Daniel P. Sabines received sentences of six and nine years, respectively, for an attempted burglary that occurred in August of 2010. In October, both Pierce and Sabines were found guilty of second degree burglary – a class C felony – by a jury of their peers following their separate trials.
According to prosecutors, the pair unlawfully entered a 22 Beebe Ave. residence under the pretense of going door-to-door collecting signatures for a political petition. When confronted by the home’s owner, Sabines fled through a back door. Pierce, though not seen by the homeowner, is alleged to have exited from a second floor window.
