IN COURT: Rector, 18, pleads guilty to burglary

May 2, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — A Columbia City 18-year-old pleaded guilty to his role in a burglary last year.

Charles Rector admitted his guilt Monday in Whitley County Circuit Court.

Rector’s plea was “straight up,” without an agreement beforehand.

“I hope the state dismisses the theft charge on the guilty plea to burglary,” said Whitley County Public Defender Brad Voelz, who was representing Rector.

Whitley County Prosecutor Matt Rentschler confirmed that was his intent.

Burglary is a Class B felony and theft is a Class D felony.

For the burglary, the charge to which Rector admitted his guilt, there is a sentencing range from 6 to 20 years, with 10 being the advisory sentence.
