Maricopa man serving prison term for town crimes

Posted: Updated:
FLORENCE, AZ (AP) -

Authorities say a Maricopa man has begun a 10 1/2-year prison sentence for a series of crimes in the town eight months ago.

Pinal County prosecutors say 19-year-old Shakir Thomas pleaded guilty to kidnapping, attempted sexual assault and attempted burglary.

Maricopa police say Thomas broke into and burglarized a home on March 8 and detained and tried to sexually assault one of the female occupants.

Eight days later, police responded to a noise complaint call and reported seeing items reported stolen from the March 8 case.

County officials authorized DNA to be collected from Thomas and police say tests linked him to the crimes.

He was sentenced on Oct. 21 and will be on lifetime probation after serving his prison term.
