Alaska judge sentences repeat burglar to 10 years

Posted: Monday, May 24, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A judge has sentenced a repeat burglar to 10 years in prison after declaring him a "worst offender."

Prosecutors in Anchorage say 35-year-old Derrick Anthony Southhall was previously convicted of first-degree burglary and second-degree theft in a May 2009 break-in.

In the latest case, Southhall was accused of climbing through the window of a mobile home while the residents were inside watching television in the living room.

Police arrested him a few blocks away with one of the victim's credit cards.

Prosecutors said Southhall had previously been convicted in four different felony theft or burglary cases.
