A man is sentenced to four decades in prison in connection to a home invasion.
The Vanderbrugh County Prosecutor's Office says Nalakeio Bennett was sentenced to 40 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections Monday afternoon.
In August of 2013, Bennett was involved in two days of a jury trial before asking Prosecutors to accept a guilty verdict from him.
Bennett pleaded guilty to Burglary Resulting in Bodily Injury – A Felony, Criminal Confinement – B Felony, and Theft – D Felony. He will receive 20 years from those charges.
Bennett also accepted a Criminal Gang Enhancement which will give him another 20 years, bringing his final sentence to 40 years within the Indiana Department of Corrections.
Per his deal, Bennett also agreed to testify against his co-defendants.
Bennett marks the fourth and final defendant to be sentenced following the February 2012 home invasion.
