Authorities said a Belmont County man who was charged with breaking into at least 15 homes was sentenced to eight years behind bars.
Authorities said Lawrence Henry 37, spoke in court Monday about his oxycodone habit which he said started when his knee was crushed in a work accident.
Henry in court said he was sorry and realized he needs prison time for what he did.
Belmont County Prosecutor Chris Berhalter read letters in court Monday from victims who said some of their jewelry that was taken belonged to their deceased parents and couldn't be replaced.
