BANGOR, Maine — An Argyle woman was sentenced Tuesday at the Penobscot Judicial Center to two years in prison with all but four months suspended for her role in separate Old Town break-ins last year.

Kristi R. Corliss, 19, of Argyle also was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay more than $2,000 in restitution.

Corliss pleaded guilty just prior to being sentenced on two counts each of burglary and theft and one count each of criminal mischief and violation of condition of release.

She had no prior criminal record, according to the Penobscot County district attorney’s office.

Her co-defendant, Kyle Dubay, 22, of Old Town, is scheduled to appear in court next month on the same charges.

By pleading guilty, Corliss admitted that she broke into an abandoned Bennoch Road home and helped strip it of metal on Aug. 17. Corliss, Dubay and Jared M. Healey, 21, of Old Town were arrested by Old Town police while in the home, according to a previous report.

She also admitted Tuesday that on Nov. 16 she broke into the home of an Old Town woman and stole her DVD collection. Corliss and Dubay were arrested again Dec. 16 after the stolen DVDs turned up at a local resale shop.

Corliss has been held at the Penobscot County Jail since then. That time will be counted toward her sentence.

She faced up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000 on the burglary charge alone.
