KILLEEN (November 29, 2012)--A Killeen man was sentenced Wednesday to federal prison after he earlier pleaded guilty to breaking into a soldier's barracks room and stealing several items.
U.S. District Judge Walter S. Smith sentenced Norris Dupard, Jr., to serve two 2-year prison terms concurrently, to be followed by two concurrent 3-year terms on supervised release.
Smith also ordered Dupard to pay a $1,000 fine and $200 in special assessment to the court.
An affidavit filed by an FBI special agent who investigated the burglary said on Jan. 7, Dupard broke into a room in a U.S. Army barracks on Fort Hood and stole a MAC Book Pro laptop, an XBOX 360 gaming system, a VIZIO 26" LED television, misc jewelry, clothes and two olive drab army laundry bags.
When confronted by investigators, Dupard admitted he had pawned some of the stolen items at Action Pawn #1 in Killeen.
Upon searching his motel room agents found and recovered jewelry and clothes that belonged to the victim.
