DOVER - A Rochester man who pleaded guilty in a brutal Rochester home invasion from two years ago was sentenced on Tuesday at Strafford County Superior Court.
Robbie Jablonski, of 18 King St., was released on time served, some 245 days.
He will have the rest of his 2-4 year sentence suspended for two years.
Jablonski, along with Giovanni Monroe, 36, of 15 Royal Crest Mobile Home Park, Ryan Tiberio, of 9 Western Ave Apt. 4 Dover, and Cedric Ross, of 157 Rochester Hills Road, Apt. 7, were all arrested in the home invasion and robbery that occurred on Academy Street on Nov. 17, 2015.
Court documents in the case state that Monroe brandished a gun and held box cutters to a victim's throat in an attempt to steal drugs the four thought were in the Academy Street apartment.
Jablonski was charged with armed robbery for allegedly brandishing a gun during the home invasion; robbery for allegedly using a box cutter in commission of the crime and falsifying physical evidence for allegedly flushing drugs down a toilet and hiding drug paraphernalia. He had faced up to 42 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
Police said they responded to the incident around 9:10 p.m. on Nov. 17 and learned that three males entered the residence, ordered the five people inside to the floor and took an undisclosed amount of money.
Based upon a brief investigation detectives went to the Riviera Motel where they conducted a search warrant on a room as part of the investigation and recovered evidence leading to the arrests.
As part of his plea deal Jablonski pleaded guilty to a single charge of robbery.
Monroe was sentenced to a minimum of four years in state prison in February for his part in the home invasion.
