BANGOR, Maine — One of two people charged with burglarizing cars during Bangor High School’s graduation June 5 at the Bangor Civic Center pleaded guilty and was sentenced Friday at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

Jason A. Ludden, 32, of Brewer was sentenced to 30 months in prison with all but six months suspended and two years of probation, according to the Penobscot County District Attorney’s Office.

He pleaded guilty to two charges of burglary to a motor vehicle and two misdemeanor counts of operating after revocation and making a false report, Michael Roberts, deputy district attorney, said Friday.

In addition to jail time and probation, Ludden was ordered to pay $700 in restitution and $2,000 in mandatory fines on the operating after revocation counts.

Ludden and Jillian McCann, 31, of Brewer were indicted last month by the Penobscot County grand jury on two counts each of burglary to a motor vehicle and two counts each of theft by unauthorized taking.

Ludden faced up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine on each of the burglary to a motor vehicle counts.

The charges against McCann are pending, Roberts said.
