WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has been sentenced to up to 27 years in prison for his role in a 2013 home invasion.

Devon McLeod was sentenced Monday in Worcester Superior Court following his conviction in December on a single count of home invasion. He was acquitted of 17 other charges. The judge gave him credit for about 2,000 days of time served while awaiting trial.

Prosecutors say McLeod and a co-defendant who was acquitted confronted a woman outside of her Worcester apartment in August 2013 and forced their way inside. McLeod was indicted as a “habitual criminal” based on his criminal record.

Authorities say money and marijuana were stolen from the apartment and that shots were fired in the direction of officers after police responded to a 911 call.
