A local man received a significant sentence for his role in a home burglary where money and jewelry were stolen.

In Sullivan County Court, 32-year-old Jason Huebsch of Livingston Manor was sentenced to 10 years in state prison for a residential home burglary. He was sentenced as a second felony offender because of a prior felony possession of marijuana conviction in 2006.

"This 10 year sentence underscores my commitment to the residents of this county to hold home burglars accountable for their acts,” Sullivan County District Attorney Jim Farrell said. “Our neighbors and friends should not live in fear and if you cause such fear, if you shatter the privacy one expects in their home you will see the inside of a prison cell, you will go to prison and you will be held accountable."

Huebsch recently pleaded guilty to burglary, admitting he burglarizing a home in the Town of Liberty in January 2017.

Jewelry and cash were stolen from the home while the owner wasn't home. Huebsch was arrested after New York State Police found some of the stolen jewelry.
