The Day of New London, Conn., reports 27-year-old Justin Weissinger and 23-year-old Karl Weissinger entered their pleas to larceny charges Wednesday under the Alford Doctrine, which means they don’t agree with the prosecutors version of events, but acknowledge the evidence exits to secure their convictions.
Prosecutors say the brothers stole jewelry, precious metals, antiques, guns and other valuables during their burglary spree. Under a plea deal, Justin Weissinger is expected to receive a 9-year prison sentence. Karl Weissinger has agreed to a 3-year sentence.
A Mystic, Conn., jeweler charged with receiving more than $200,000 worth of items stolen by the brothers, is scheduled to enter a plea on July 30.
