County Judge John G. Turner Monday sentenced a man who admitted breaking into the governor's mansion to six to 12 years in prison under a plea bargain.
John Leslie Hill, 50, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., admitted that he broke into the Executive Mansion late in the morning of Nov. 9, 1988.
Several pieces of jewelry stolen in the burglary were recovered from Hill's motel room after he was stopped for drunken driving. He was also charged with burglarizing a rectory in New Hartford, near Utica.
Hill is an escapee from a Florida prison, where he was serving a 17-year sentence for burglary.
