Two Jessamine residents were sentenced Friday in connection with a string of home invasions between July and September 2012.
Twenty-eight-year-old Erick Reynolds received a 10-year sentence after pleading guilty on February 8 to nine counts of burglary 2nd degree and one count of theft by unlawful taking. Reynolds also pled guilty to being a persistent felony offender in the 2nd degree and admitted he broke into eight different homes, one of them twice, as well as a vehicle. Reynolds stole jewelry and other valuables and then sold them at a pawn shop. At the time of the thefts, Reynolds was on probation for a 2011 burglary conviction for which he received an eight-year sentence. The sentence imposed today will run consecutively with the eight-year sentence.
Also sentenced Friday was 32-year-old Shaylin Floyd, who received five years in prison on nine counts of burglary 2nd degree for her role in the burglaries committed by Reynolds. Floyd admitted she drove Reynolds to the homes that were burglarized and assisted in obtaining cash for the stolen items. Floyd's sentence will run consecutively to a one year sentence for theft in Fayette County, for which Floyd was on probation at the time of the Jessamine County burglaries.
