Done in by DNA, Niagara Falls burglar faces eight years in prison

Steven T. Carlisle, whose DNA was found on a glove left at a burglarized Niagara Falls home, pleaded guilty Thursday.

Judge Matthew J. Murphy III said he will sentence Carlisle March 29 to 2 1/2 to five years in prison, to be served after he finishes about three years for violating parole on a 15-year sentence for a 2003 home invasion.

It will be Carlisle's fourth prison sentence for burglary since 1992. Carlisle, 48, of B Street in the Falls, admitted to a Nov. 19, 2016, break-in at the South Military Road home, where pry marks were found on a safe.

Niagara County Assistant District Attorney Claudette S. Caldwell said the homeowner found the glove.

Carlisle also pleaded guilty to petit larceny for stealing a woman's wallet on Pine Avenue in the Falls Sept. 16.
