Two Nicholasville residents are sentenced for string of home burglaries

April 12, 2013 

Two Nicholasville residents were sentenced Friday in connection with a string of home burglaries in Jessamine County between July and September 2012, officials in Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway's office said.

Erick Reynolds, 28, was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty in February to nine counts of second-degree burglary and one count of theft by unlawful taking. At the time of the thefts, Reynolds was on probation for a 2011 burglary conviction for which he received an eight-year sentence. The sentence imposed Friday will run consecutively with the eight-year sentence.

Shaylin Floyd, 32, was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to nine counts of second-degree burglary for her role in the burglaries committed by Reynolds. Floyd admitted she drove Reynolds to the homes that were burglarized and helped obtain cash for the stolen items.

Her sentence will run consecutively with a one-year sentence for theft in Fayette County for which Floyd was on probation at the time of the Jessamine County burglaries.
