TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y. — A Lansing man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for his role in a Dryden home invasion in April 2018.

Kevin Chambliss, 32, was indicted on charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree strangulation, first-degree kidnapping, second-degree criminal possession of a loaded firearm and first-degree criminal sexual act in June 2018. And in January, he pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary, a class B violent felony.

Henry Moreno, 29, also of Lansing, was previously sentenced to two years in prison for his involvement in the incident. Few details were released after the arrests were announced, but court records state that a woman contacted 911 saying Moreno and Chambliss had left her home with an injured person after assaulting her and brandishing a weapon.

During Friday’s sentencing hearing, Chambliss apologized to the victim and said, “I feel like I made a poor decision.”

In Tompkins County Court on Friday, Judge Joseph Cassidy sentenced Chambliss to 10 years in state prison followed by five years of parole. Cassidy also approved an order of protection for the victim.
