A 47-year-old man pled guilty to a 2011 residential burglary and was subsequently sentenced to 14 years in prison.
The burglary occurred on October 21, 2011, when the resident of the home reported to police that she heard a knock on her back door, and the door was forced open after she didn't answer. The resident told police a male entered her home, asked for money and jewelry, and went through her drawers before leaving the home with jewelry.
The suspect was identified by Rockford Detectives as Edward Rodriguez, who admitted to detectives that he took the jewelry.
Rodriguez is not eligible for probation and he must serve three years mandatory supervised release after he leaves prison.
