Man gets 20 years for Summerville home invasion

Posted: Updated:
SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

A 58-year-old man was sentenced to 20 years in prison after being found guilty in a home invasion that happened at a Summerville home last year.

The First Circuit Solicitor's Office says Carl Chaplin was convicted in Dorchester County on Thursday for first-degree burglary and two charges of kidnapping in a home invasion that happened on Dec. 3, 2011 at a home on Cone Lane.

The jury deliberated for an hour before returning a verdict of guilty on all three charges.

According to court officials, Chaplin recruited two people go to the victim's home where the two co-defendants held the victims at gunpoint and tied their hands behind their backs.

Authorities say the co-defendants were armed with rope, a shotgun, masks and gloves, all of which were provided by Chaplin.

Chaplin drove the two co-defendants to the scene and then pulled around the corner to act as a lookout. After the home invasion, Chaplin drove the co-defendants from the scene where they went to split the proceeds of the crime.
