A Cambridge man, who confessed to three November burglaries after turning himself in, was sentenced on Tuesday.
According to records of the Guernsey County Common Pleas Court, Judge David A. Ellwood sentenced 24-year-old Cory Hale to 12 months imprisonment on three counts of burglary. Hale was also ordered to pay $1,240 in restitution to two of his victims. Hale had already repaid one of three victims, prior to his sentencing.
The Cambridge Police Department reported in December that Hale entered the Guernsey County Law Enforcement Center on November 30 and turned himself in for his role in the theft of electronics and jewelry reported missing from three different residences on Cambridge's north side. Hale reportedly admitted to detectives that he stole the items to sell to support his drug addiction and wanted to get help.
