A Marquette man has been sentenced to 270 days in jail on a home invasion charge. 26 year old Douglas Fitzpatrick received credit for 67 days already served and will have the jail time deferred. He also has 24 months probation, fines and costs.
Fitzpatrick pleaded no contest last month in Marquette County Circuit Court to one count of third degree home invasion. He was arrested February 18 for breaking into a residence on the 500 block of W. Washington Street in Marquette.
The Marquette City Police say the investigation showed that Fitzpatrick had been at the victim’s house visiting with the victim on January 14. The victim left the residence, told Fitzpatrick he needed to leave and complied. The victim returned to his residence after a short time and noticed the residence had been broken into and items were stolen.
