AUGUSTA, Maine — A Massachusetts man has been sentenced to serve six months in jail for his role in a home invasion in Maine in April.

Prosecutors say 29-year-old Robert DeJesus Jr. of Southbridge, Massachusetts, was one of three men who entered an Augusta apartment looking for $20,000 in proceeds from illegal drug sales they believed was there.

The Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1uDyQQE ) reports that his lawyer says DeJesus entered his plea under the Alford doctrine because he disagreed with some of the facts alleged by police but believed a jury would likely find him guilty.

DeJesus pleaded guilty to burglary, aggravated criminal mischief, criminal threatening, assault and impersonating a public servant.

Prosecutors say the three defendants wore masks and claimed to be police when they entered the home, and tied up two residents.
