RE: CONVICTED BURGLARS GO TO PRISON IN FABER BREAK-INS
FROM: ANTHONY MARTIN, COMMONWEALTH’S ATTORNEY
Today in Nelson County Circuit Court, two men received prison sentences for their roles in burglarizing several homes in the Faber area last year. Judge J. Michael Gamble heard emotional testimony from Serrena Becerra, Carol Beasley and James Wright who were the victims of these crimes and neighbors of Brodas Morris. Several of the witnesses lost family heirlooms, class rings and other property that they said could not be replaced. They also said they lost their feelings of being safe in their own homes.
Back in February, the two men pleaded guilty to burglaries and grand larcenies involving 3 different homes all within walking distance from Brodas Morris’ home. Both admitted to stealing a television, entertainment equipment, jewelry, scrap metal, copper wiring and plumbing, and a 12-gauge shotgun.
Brodus Morris (dob: May 1987) of Faber was sentenced to a total of 35 years in prison with 32 years suspended on certain conditions such as paying restitution to the property owners. He was also ordered to have no contact with the victims and will be on probation for 20 years after his release from prison.
Robert Thomas (dob: March 1989) was sentenced to a total of 30 years in prison with 27 years suspended. He will also be on probation and is also ordered to pay restitution to the victims.
