Bond for a Hagerstown woman was revoked after she pleaded guilty this week in Washington County Circuit Court to participating in a rash of burglaries with her brother and boyfriend.

Jordan Linn Boerstler, 20, of Links View Drive pleaded guilty on Monday to two counts of first-degree burglary, and one count each of third-degree burglary, criminal conspiracy to commit theft between $10,000 and $100,000, criminal conspiracy to commit theft between $1,000 and $10,000, and theft between $1,000 and $10,000, according to court records.

The remainder of the charges were dismissed, the court records said.

The plea was taken at the bench before Circuit Judge Dana Moylan Wright, because Boerstler was scheduled for a trial on Monday, and a jury was present in the courtroom.

Details of the agreement were not discussed in open court so as not to taint the jury had a trial gone forward, Assistant State’s Attorney Michele Hansen said Wednesday.

Boerstler is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 22, records said.

Jordan Boerstler’s brother, Derick Lane Boerstler, 23, of Hagerstown was sentenced in April to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to related charges.

Jordan Boerstler’s boyfriend at the time of the break-ins, Timothy Blake Miller, 21, entered into a plea agreement in his case in March, but has yet to be sentenced, court records said.

At the time of his plea to burglary and related charges, the prosecution was asking for a sentence in the range of 15 to 20 years.

Miller’s plea agreement also included unrelated criminal acts for which the Boerstlers were not accused.

The plea agreement reached Monday with Jordan Boerstler involved charges from five residential burglaries last year, court records said.

A number of the victims were known to the Boerstlers and Miller, Hansen said in March when Miller entered his plea.

Coins, jewelry, a Rolex watch and other belongings were stolen, some of which were pawned locally or sold to a man in Frederick County, Md., according to charging documents.

In previous court proceedings for Miller and Derick Boerstler, prosecutors and defense attorneys cited heroin addiction as the reason the crimes were committed.
