                The man police say kept women in fear for more than three months after breaking into 11 homes and stealing their panties and other under garments was on probation at the time of his arrest for breaking into a woman’s home in 2005.

                Joseph P. Lillo, 32, pleaded guilty in January 2006 to a charge of burglary of a dwelling before Circuit Court Judge Andrew Howorth in 2006. According to the indictment, filed in the Circuit Court in Oxford, Lillo broke into a women’s home on July 5, 2005.

                The indictment does not say what Lillo stole.

                He was sentenced to 20 years in prison with 12 years suspended, leaving eight years to serve. Yet less than four years later, Lillo was released from prison on Nov. 4, 2009, and placed on probation. (October 12, 2010, Page 1)
