The state is recommending a Hagerstown man spend 15 to 20 years in state prison after he entered guilty pleas Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court to six burglaries - as well as criminal offenses committed after he posted bond on the burglary charges. Timothy Blake Miller, 21, formerly of 17548 Gay St., also pleaded guilty to a rogue and vagabond charge and entered an Alford plea to a charge of possession of heroin with intent to distribute. An Alford plea in not an admission of guilt, but is an acknowledgment that the state has enough evidence to get a conviction.
