SYCAMORE – A DeKalb man was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to residential burglary charges.

Cortez J. Wamble, 21, of the 900 block of Fotis Drive, pleaded guilty to two counts of residential burglary in DeKalb County Court. He broke into a home in the 400 block of Larking Avenue in DeKalb on April 17, 2012, and a home in the 500 block of Viking Drive on April 24, 2012, court records show.

The charge typically is punishable by 4 to 15 years in prison. Wamble received credit for 385 days he spent in DeKalb County jail while his case was pending.

As part of the negotiated agreement, prosecutors dropped less serious charges of criminal damage to property, theft under $300 and unlawful possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. Wamble was accused of having more than an ounce of marijuana on April 25, 2012, records show.
