HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -
An 18-year-old man has been sentenced for a crime that has been dubbed "every homeowner's worst nightmare."
Anthony Shane Morgan, formerly of Mabank, was sentenced to six years in prison by Judge Dan Moore after a sentencing hearing in the 173rd Judicial District Court.
During the hearing, the court heard testimony from a victim whose home received nearly $50,000 in damage to his family home.
According to authorities, vandalism to the home included squirting various liquids and powders throughout the house, shattering glasses, breaking windows, ripping wiring out of the wall, and even what appeared to be an attempt to start a fire inside the house.
Court documents say that Morgan admitted to stealing alcohol from the home so he could throw a party.
According to the Henderson County District Attorney's office, the homeowner testified that there was vomit and urine throughout the house, and that one of the toilets was clogged after someone defecated in it. So much damage was done, the homeowner said, that all of the carpet in the home had to be replaced. Also, multiple items were stolen from the home, including a stereo.
The homeowner also testified that entry had been made into his boathouse where it appeared that several people had been "living hard". Alcohol and cigarettes were found along with make-shift beds made of pool floats.
The most disturbing act cited by the homeowner, according to the D.A., was that his family's clothing had been worn and that it was obvious that someone had gone through their personal belongings. Even his wife's slippers appeared to have been worn around the home, which heightened the family's sense of violation. Finally, an irreplaceable family heirloom was also ruined during the burglary.
During an interview by Investigator Monte Mansfield of the Gun Barrel City Police Department, Morgan admitted to entering the home on four different occasions.
"Anyone who has been a victim of a home burglary understands the violation of privacy one feels when someone unlawfully enters their home," said District Attorney Scott McKee. "I am very proud of the work the Gun Barrel City Police Department did in solving this case for the victim and citizens of our county."
