Paul Robert Conrad
MADISON, W. Va. – A Sylvester man is headed to prison for breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home.
Paul Robert Conrad, 47, pled guilty Wednesday to Burglary, Violating a Domestic Violence Petition and Domestic Assault before Judge William S. Thompson.
Information obtained from the criminal complaint shows that in October 2011, Deputy McCarty of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call about two men involved in a fight.
When Deputy McCarty arrived on scene, he found Conrad on the floor and another man on top of him holding Conrad to the floor.
Deputies noticed a 12-gauge shotgun near the men, and that Conrad had a shotgun wound to his left arm.
Upon further investigation, Deputies learned that Conrad had broken a window to his ex-girlfriend’s home and entered through the broken window.
A male resident of the house confronted Conrad in the hallway, and as Conrad approached the man, Conrad was shot in the arm and a struggle ensued until police arrived.
Deputies later learned that Conrad was forbidden from being in the home of his ex-girlfriend by a domestic violence protective order.
Conrad was arrested after a brief hospital stay for the gunshot wound.
Following his guilty plea on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, Judge Thompson sentenced Conrad to prison for up to 10 years.
