A 28-year-old Bradenton woman was sentenced to 10 years in prison for invading a man’s Bradenton Beach home while he slept and threatening him with a weapon.
Jamie Hall pleaded no contest in December 2017 to one count of armed burglary and two counts of burglary to unoccupied vehicles.
Bradenton Beach police arrested Hall May 30, 2017, for entering the man’s residence in the 100 block of 13th Street South, threatening him with a box cutter and demanding his money and car keys.
Stolen keys, sunglasses and eyeglasses from the vehicles were found in Hall’s possession and returned to their owners.
In a Jan. 17 sentencing, 12th Circuit Judge Brian Iten ordered Hall to 10 years in the Florida Department of Corrections and, after she serves the prison time, to a five-year probation, including an addiction program and prohibiting victim contact.
For the vehicle break-ins, the judge ordered two five-year sentences to run concurrent to the armed burglary sentence.
The sentence also included 232 days of credit for time Hall spent in the Manatee County jail since her arrest.
She was transferred Jan. 30 from the local jail to the Florida Women’s Reception Center in Ocala with a May 2027 release date.
