WAYNESBURG – A Franklin Township man, who pleaded no contest to charges of burglary, criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking or disposition and criminal mischief Feb. 25, was sentenced Thursday to 24 months in the State Intermediate Punishment Program by Greene County Judge Farley Toothman.
David William Hodgson, 22, of 172 Tollgate Run Road, Waynesburg, was arrested by state police June 6, 2013, for a break-in March 27, 2012, at the residence of Kimberly Leanne Thorne, 159 Wayne Village, Waynesburg. Thorne told police someone broke the window in her kitchen door to gain entry to her residence and stole money.
Hodgson will serve several months of inpatient treatment for drug and alcohol addiction as part of the SIPP sentence and pay a $750 fine plus court costs and fees. He was further ordered to pay restitution to Thorne of $10 and an additional $250 to the Greene County Housing Authority for damage to the door.
In order for Hodgson to be eligible for the SIPP, jurisdiction was relinquished by Greene County for two prior cases involving Hodgson from 2011 and 2012. He pleaded guilty in 2011 to possession of a controlled substance and no contest to burglary in 2012.
If Hodgson fails to complete the required programming of the SIPP successfully, he will be returned to Greene County for resentencing.
