Two Lawrence teenagers were sentenced to prison Friday for burglaries committed during the summer in Lawrence.
Ronnie E. Taylor, 18, was sentenced to 52 months in prison after pleading no contest in November to one count of aggravated burglary related to a July 12 home invasion in the 1000 block of East 24th Street. Ten other charges in the case were dismissed.
Marckus T. Sanders, also 18, was sentenced to five years in prison Friday after pleading no contest to aggravated burglary and aggravated intimidation of a witness related to the July 15 burglary of a home in the 3900 block of West 10th Place.
Sanders was sentenced to 19 months for the intimidation of a witness charge, but the sentences will run concurrently, or at the same time. Four other counts in the case, related to other burglaries in Lawrence, were dismissed.
Sanders received the maximum sentence that Judge Peggy Kittel could give on the aggravated burglary charge, while Taylor received the standard sentence for his crime.
A third defendant in the case, Cody A. Barnes, is scheduled for sentencing Jan. 4.
