A 28-year-old Elgin man pleaded guilty Monday to burglarizing 12 homes in Elgin, Streamwood, Schaumburg and Bartlett during a monthlong spree earlier this year.

Ryan P. Marshall, of the 1100 block of Stratford Court, was sentenced by Cook County Judge Thomas Fecarotta to 13 years in prison in exchange for pleading guilty to the felonies. Marshall, who prosecutors said was on parole for burglary and escape at the time of his arrest, must serve at least 50 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for release.

The spree began between May 6 and 11 in Elgin when Marshall took property from a home on Stratford Court in Elgin, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Mike Gerber. Marshall burglarized that residence again on May 15, Gerber said.

In all, Marshall burglarized eight homes in Elgin, two in Streamwood, one in Schaumburg and one in Bartlett, where he was arrested on June 5 carrying a television set from the home.

Marshall, who had been held on $500,000 bond, received credit for 170 days in custody.
