Leavenworth man pleads no contest to burglary
Vince Wyatt, a 19-year-old Leavenworth resident, pleaded no contest this past week to seven counts of residential burglary and a count of felony theft for his involvement in a series of crimes dating from November 2010 to April 2011.
He was finally apprehended while he and two other suspects allegedly were breaking into homes in Leavenworth County on April 6, 2011, after a neighbor called police and reported seeing Wyatt at his neighbor’s house. The cases were investigated by the Leavenworth Police Department and the Leavenworth Sheriff’s office. The state will be seeking a sentence in excess of nine years, according to Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson.
John Bryant is the prosecutor for the state and the defendant is represented by Geoff Sonntag. Sentencing will take place in front of Leavenworth County District Court Judge Gunnar Sundby at 11 a.m. July 1, 2011.
