A 24-year-old convicted in a 2006 burglary case has lost probation and is going to prison.

Christopher Marsh was given probation after he pleaded no contest to aiding and abetting a felony. Police say he broke into a pharmacy to steal drugs.

Prosecutors say that since his original sentencing Marsh has had several brushes with the law and violated his probation terms.

On Monday his attorney, Nancy Waldron, said Marsh has "messed up over and over."

But Waldron asked the court to give Marsh a short sentence with the hope that Marsh could get help for his alcohol and drug problems.

Judge Alan Gless declined to do so and gave Marsh 10 to 20 years in prison.
