Man pleads guilty in burglary

A Hagerstown man, already serving 16 years in prison for an unprovoked gun attack on a man walking along Memorial Boulevard the day after Christmas, pleaded guilty Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court to an unrelated second-degree burglary.

Judge Frederick C. Wright III sentenced Frederick Clarence Feigley Jr. to a 15-year concurrent sentence for that offense.

The previous 16-year sentence includes a mandatory five-year term for the use of a handgun.

That incident on Dec. 26, 1996, occurred near the intersection with Frederick Street, Hagerstown City Police said.

The victim told police he was walking behind three young men when one turned and asked him if he was following them, police said.

Feigley, one of the three men, was accused of striking the victim, knocking out two of his teeth, and then threatening him with a .32-caliber Smith and Wesson revolver, police said.


Two attendants from a nearby service station came to the victim's aid and held Feigley down until police arrived.

The burglary occurred on Oct. 2, 1996, at the Subway Shop at 525 Northern Ave. when Feigley and a friend rode bicycles to the shop where Feigley's friend worked.

They used a key to get into the building and the combination to get into the safe, taking just over $500, according to Assistant State's Attorney Duane Gigeous.

Feigley admitted to the burglary after he was picked up for the gun incident.
