Teen sentenced to probation, jail for burglary
A Superior teen accused of taking part in a string of burglaries between May and August will spend five years on probation and six months in jail.
Cameron James Labonte, 17, pleaded guilty Dec. 20 in Douglas County Circuit Court to felony burglary. Misdemeanor charges of theft and criminal damage to property were dismissed but read in for sentencing. Labonte was granted Huber release for work and school. He was also ordered to pay $2,307 restitution, court costs and have no contact with any of the victims or businesses involved.
Five additional charges of burglary, three counts of theft, and charges of take and drive vehicle without consent, possession of burglarious tools and resisting or obstructing an officer were dismissed.
The burglaries took place when Labonte was 16. At the beginning of the sentencing hearing, court records show he was waived to adult court.
According to the criminal complaint:
Labonte burglarized Striker's Bar in May and was accused of a number of marine vessel and business burglaries throughout the summer in Superior. Superior Police brought Labonte in for questioning Aug. 22. During a break in the interview, the teen punched the walls, breaking the sheetrock and ripping the thermostat off the wall.
