Burglary victim advocates for non-stranger who stole from him

NORWICH— A Coventry man pleaded guilty to the class D felony of burglary in the third degree after stealing from a man he had worked for, and at his sentencing the victim requested the defendant be allowed to work and serve weekends.



On June 10, 2014, 33-year-old James E. Fletcher of Coventry was arrested by the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office and charged with the class C felony of burglary in the second degree.

It was alleged Fletcher unlawfully entered the residence of a man he had done work for and stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, among other items.

Fletcher pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of burglary in the third degree, a class D felony, this year and was promised a split sentence of six months of incarceration and five years of probation.
