Fairmont Man Burglary Sentence 20 Nov 13

A Fairmont man was sentenced to over 4 years in prison on Monday for his role in the burglary and assault of a man at his workplace last December. 34-year-old Justin Kenneth Kabe was reportedly with a group of 6 people when the incident at Henway Manufacturing north of Fairmont occurred. They apparently knew that the man carried a large amount of cash, so they allegedly attacked and robbed him when he left for work early in the morning. Kabe pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting first-degree burglary on Monday and was sentenced to 56 months in prison. He will serve at least two-thirds of that sentence in prison before being allowed intensive supervised release. He will also be required to pay $2,100 in restitution. Only Kabe and the woman who drove the group to the workplace have been charged for the crime so far. 30-year-old Stephanie Elaine Danielson of Welcome pleaded guilty to simple robbery in October and is scheduled to be sentenced this Thursday.
