LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man who pleaded guilty to burglary charges in October learned his sentence.
Thursday, Richard Biscomb was sentenced to 13 years in prison.
In court, it was revealed Biscomb went on a ride-along with officers to point out all of the homes he burglarized, but it was hard to keep track of them all.
Before sentencing Biscomb's attorney asked the judge for probation, which she denied.
His attorney said Biscomb burglarized the homes to support his addiction to the pain killer Opana, "When we look at his entire life and we look at the spectrum of where he's been, we will see until he had that addiction, he was not involved in this type of behavior and that's why we're here today."
Judge Judith McDonald Burkman said, "This community is really tired of paying for addictions, yours included. Everyone in this community, not just the victims here, pay for your addiction. None of us signed up for that."
Biscomb will get credit for the nearly one year he has already served.
Burkman also ordered Biscomb to pay $122,000 in restitution to his victims.
