LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A Caledonia woman who is charged with eight burglaries spanning two counties pled guilty to one in satisfaction of seven others Tuesday morning and was sentenced to prison.
Nicole Green, 29, represented by attorney Christopher Laragy, pled guilty to one count of Burglary in the Second Degree, a C felony, and was sentenced to 9 years in state prison with 5 years of post-release supervision, and an 8-year order of protection was issued for the victims.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” said Green. “I apologize to everyone involved and the people I hurt. I’m glad no one was physically hurt.”
Green admitted to entering a home in Caledonia and stealing jewelry while inside.
Also included in the Superior Court Information was one count of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, two counts of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, and four counts of Petit Larceny.
Green had backed down last Tuesday when she made a court appearance to enter a guilty plea but changed her mind.
Though Burglary in the Second Degree is a violent felony, Judge Robert Wiggins overrode the violent felony aspect so that Green would still be eligible for a variety of drug treatment programs.
It is possible that Green worked with another person to commit this burglary. If there comes a time when a co-defendant is convicted in connection with this incident, the $6,307.35 will be due jointly from both Green and the co-defendant.
Green is charged with one count of Burglary in the Second Degree in Genesee County.
