Man pleads guilty to burglary charge, receives 10 years confinement

A man originally charged with burglary of a habitation and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon was in a Tom Green court this week to enter a guilty plea for burglary of a habitation in return for the aggravated assault charge to be dismissed. 

Bradley Duncan received 10 years in the penitentiary for the charge.

Both charges stem from an incident on Sept. 28, 2015, when Duncan broke into his ex-wife’s residence on Sunset Drive. According to court documents, the victim told police Duncan woke her up by striking her multiple times in the side with a long-barreled firearm.

She then grabbed her children and left the apartment.

When police met with her, they did see injuries on the victim that were consistent with her account of what had happened.

She also told police Duncan had previously threatened to “blow her kneecaps off.”
