CHAMBERSBURG, PA. ? Two Hagerstown brothers convicted on charges that they broke into half a dozen Franklin County homes last year received state prison sentences Wednesday in Franklin County Court.
John Lynn Miles Jr., 19, and Matthew Lee Miles, 18, both of 923 Kenly Drive each pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and one count of criminal trespass, according to court records. Judge Douglas W. Herman sentenced John Miles to three years and three months to 11 years in prison with Matthew Miles getting three to 11 1/2 years in prison.
John Miles is serving a sentence of up to 20 years in Maryland for burglary copnvictions in Washington County, said Assistant District Attorney Lauren Sulcove. He will serve his Pennsylvania sentence after completing the Maryland sentence, she said.
John Miles pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary in Washington County in March, according to court records.
Sulcove said Matthew Miles is facing burglary charges in Washington County. He will serve his Pennsylvania sentence first with any sentence arising from a conviction in the Maryland cases to be determined later, she said.
