A Paris man accused of kicking in the door of a home on North Caldwell Street was sentenced to 10 years in jail when he pleaded guilty during Monday’s session of Henry County Circuit Court.

David Allen Perry, 42, of 105 Dunlap St. pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated burglary.

Perry’s sentence will be split. He will spend one year in continuous confinement in the Department of Correction. The balance of the sentence will be served in the 24th Judicial District’s community corrections program.

He has the option of completing a long-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation program to receive day-for-day jail credit.

Perry was also ordered to pay $474 in restitution.

He was charged in connection with a break-in in November of 2019.

A female resident was home when Perry attempted to break into the house.

She told the police at the time she heard two bangs on the door and opened it because she believed it was a family member.

Perry tried to push his way into the house, but the woman struggled with him and then called for help.

Perry was arrested a short time later at a nearby business.

One defendant was placed on deferred probation after Judge Donald Parish did not accept her guilty plea.

Reginna Dian Spencer, 36, of 1225 Edwards St. in Paris pleaded guilty to a charge of the fraudulent use of a credit card.

Parish did not accept that plea, and Spencer was placed on deferred probation. That means that if she follows the terms of her probation for the four years of her sentence, the charge against her will be expunged.

She was ordered to pay $12,965 in restitution.
