NORWICH – A convicted violent burglar and a recovering heroin user were sentenced by Frank B. Revoir, Jr. in Chenango County Court on Nov. 6.
• In Dec. of 2013, Brandon J. Hannah, 32, Bainbridge was charged with burglary in the second degree, a class C felony; petit larceny, a class A misdemeanor; and reckless endangerment in the second degree, a class A misdemeanor.
Hannah pleaded guilty to burglary in the second degree.
It is alleged, per the indictment, that on or about Dec. 25, 2013, in the Town of Bainbridge, Hannah did enter and remain in a building with the intent to commit a crime, and then did commit the crime of larceny. Hannah allegedly stole a laptop, Playstation 3, Playstation games, tools, blankets and money from the victim.
It is also alleged that Hannah then drove his vehicle directly at the victim before applying his brakes, striking the victim’s legs with the vehicle as he was stopping.
“Your honor, the defendant has a long history of criminal activity out-of-state and he continued that activity when he came here,” said First Assistant District Attorney Michael D. Ferrarese. “He was caught on Christmas holiday, and the victim confronted him.”
Hannah's lawyer, Scott Clippinger, said it was an agreed upon disposition and he had nothing to say.
