Jedidiah Lantz Sentenced For Stealing Knives and Failure To Register As A Sex Offender
A Natrona County man is heading to prison after admitting to his role in a burglary case.
Thirty-three year old Jedidiah Lantz was sentenced to four-and-one-half to six-and-one-half years in prison, after he pleaded guilty to one charge of aiding and abetting with aggravated burglary.
At the same time, he will also serve a four-to-five year prison sentence, after he pleaded guilty to one charge of failure to register as a sex offender.
Casper Police say in September, Lantz and several other accomplices were with 26-year old Larry Burgess, when two victims at the 1200 block of North Center Street in Casper were attacked, and had an $1,800 collection of knifes taken from them.
Lantz admitted to taking the knives and it was later discovered, that Lantz was a sex offender and had not been keeping up to date with law enforcement, on where he was living.
Three other co-defendants have been sentenced for their roles in the case, while Burgess has pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault and battery and is waiting to be sentenced.
