SPRINGFIELD -- A Springfield man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to a 2013 burglary of a garage.
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports a circuit judge on Tuesday sentenced 31-year-old Walter Cunningham.
Police caught Cunningham and 30-year-old Michael Brown inside a garage in May 2013. Cunningham pleaded guilty to burglary in May without a plea deal. It's unclear if they took anything.
The assistant state's attorney recommended the sentence because Cunningham has been in prison three times for burglaries in 2003, 2005 and 2008.
Brown previously pleaded guilty to the burglary and was sentenced to seven years in prison.
