DA: Burglar woke victim for the thrill

(Continued)

Police later spotted him walking down the street, barefoot, and arrested him.

His lawyer, Nicole Reilly, urged a lesser sentence for Delangis, suggesting that Lowy could sentence him to a shorter prison term and impose probation on the burglary charge, sparing him the minimum mandatory.

Reilly blamed substance abuse and a troubled childhood — she said she had represented Delangis’ father a decade ago in a felony case — for the crime.

“He’s still a very young man,” Reilly told the judge. “A 10-year sentence is his life.”

Lowy scheduled another hearing for March 27, where Delangis will either plead guilty and accept whatever sentence the judge decides to impose or ask to go to trial.
