A Macon man pled guilty to charges in connection with a 2009 burglary last week, and a family tragedy appeared to play a part in his sentencing.

Rodney Rodell Ford was sentenced Oct. 24 in Jones County Superior Court to 20 years each on two counts burglary and 12 months for the misdemeanor charge of obstruction. All counts are to run concurrently for a total of 20 years.

The first four years are to be served in confinement with credit for time served from July 26, 2011. The remainder of his sentence may be served on probation.

Assistant District Attorney Dawn Baskin asked Ford be allowed to spend most of his 20-year sentence on probation.
