A Kent man has been sentenced to six years in prison for burglarizing a family member's home in Randolph in December 2012.
Devon R. Dorr, 35, with a last known address of 2001 Carlton Drive, was recently sentenced by Portage County Common Pleas Judge Laurie Pittman. She also ordered him to pay restitution of $1,000 to one victim, and almost $2,721 to a victim's insurance company, according to her orders.

Dorr also was fined $200 and received credit for 109 days already served in jail awaiting sentencing.
Portage County Prosecutor Victor Vigluicci said Dorr was identified as a suspect in two burglaries at the same residence in the 2200 block of New Milford Road in Randolph, one each on Dec. 14 and Dec. 18, 2012. Two flatscreen TVs were stolen, he said, and the victims told sheriff's detectives to consider Dorr a suspect because he had stolen from them in the past.
A vehicle in that looked like one driven by Dorr also was seen in the area, Vigluicci said. When confronted by detectives, Dorr confessed to both burglaries, he said. He pleaded guilty to burglary, a second-degree felony, in June.
