ESCANABA - A 22-year-old Escanaba woman was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison Monday for her role in break-ins at an Escanaba Township residence earlier this summer.
Ashley Marie Munroe pleaded guilty in July to two felonies and one misdemeanor. She was sentenced on each crime in Delta County Circuit Court.
Judge Stephen Davis ordered Munroe to spend three years to up to 15 years in prison on one count of second-degree home invasion. She was given credit for 110 days already served in the county jail.
She was also sentenced to 110 days in jail on each of the following charges: attempted receiving and concealing stolen weapons; and attempted larceny in a building. She was given credit for the 110 days in jail on both counts. All three sentences are concurrent.
Munroe was also ordered to pay a total of $734 in fines and costs. She is to have no contact with the victims or other defendants.
Munroe is one of three co-defendants being prosecuted for break-ins at property on J Road last June.
Daniel Robert Derouin, 19, of Gladstone, was ordered Aug. 23 to spend seven months in jail on one count of attempted second-degree home invasion to which he pleaded guilty to in July.
Joseph Jonathan Kossow, 20, of Gladstone, is scheduled to be sentenced in circuit court on Thursday. In July, he pleaded guilty to breaking and entering without breaking with intent (a five-year felony) and pleaded no contest to attempted accessory after the fact (a two-and-a-half-year felony).
Each defendant was involved in either one or more break-ins at the Escanaba Township home in early June when an engine block, scrap iron items, and firearms were stolen.
Prior to being sentenced Monday, Munroe declined to make any statement to the court when she was given the opportunity.
