One Person Admits To And One Person Sentenced In Aggravated Burglary Case
One person has admitted to his role in a burglary case, while another will avoid prison time.
Thirty-three year old Jedidiah Lantz has pleaded guilty to one charge of aiding and abetting with aggravated burglary and failure to register as a sex offender.
Meanwhile, 26-year old Sheila Rohovie was given a five-to-seven year suspended prison sentence with 3 years of probation, after she pled guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary.
Casper Police say in September, Lantz and Rohovie were with 26-year old Larry Burgess and several other co-defendants, 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.
Rohovie was a lookout and the getaway driver, while Lantz admitted to taking the knives.
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.
As part of a plea deal for Lantz, prosecutors will seek no more than a four-and-one-half to six-and-one-half year prison sentence for the aiding and abetting charge, and a concurrent four-to-five year prison sentence for the failure to register charge.
As for Burgess, he has pleaded not guilty to two charges of aggravated assault and battery, along with one charge of aggravated burglary and is awaiting trial.
Two other co-defendants connected to the aggravated burglary case, have pleaded guilty to their respective charges and are waiting to be sentenced.
