CARROLLTON, Ala. (WTVA) - A man will serve 30 years in prison for breaking into an elementary school in Berry.
According to the office of District Attorney Andy Hamlin, 43-year-old Nathaniel Cannon entered a blind guilty plea to third-degree burglary.
He received his sentence on Thursday.
The burglary happened at Berry Elementary School on Nov. 15, 2018. Eleven handheld radios, two iPads, cash and other items were stolen from the school.
Cannon, who has a lengthy criminal history, had been previously convicted of burglarizing the same school.
“We were able to prove Cannon’s eight prior felony convictions as well as the fact that he has previously burglarized this school," Hamlin said. "We were more less able to show to the court that he is a career criminal. Obviously, that resonated with the court given the sentence that was handed down."
