ALBION – A Carlton burglar and Albion woman with a history of drunk driving were both sentenced to either jail or prison today.

Kenneth Martin II, 24, of South Academy Street in Medina was sentenced to five years in state prison for second-degree burglary and petty larceny. Martin was charged after allegedly breaking into a Carlton home on Oct. 1 and stealing jewelry. He allegedly broke in the next day with an accomplice Joshua Gang, who stole guns from the house.

Martin has an earlier conviction – third-degree burglary on April 13, 2009.

“He has a horrible record,” County Court Judge James Punch said in court today.

District Attorney Joseph Cardone asked that Martin be required to pay back $10,639 to Erie Insurance and another $6,020 in damages that wasn’t covered by insurance.

Punch will determine if Martin pays all of that or if it’s split with Gang, who pled guilty to his role in the crime.

“You take no responsibility for what you do and you’re constantly blaming others,” Punch said before announcing Martin’s sentence.

The judge also sentenced Lisa Foggett, 53, of Oak Orchard Road in Albion to a year in county jail after her sixth alcohol-related driving charge. She pled guilty to misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

“You are an extremely dangerous criminal,” Punch told Foggett during her sentencing. “It’s a miracle you haven’t killed somebody.”
