Rockford man pleads guilty to Marengo burglary

WOODSTOCK – A Rockford man was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to residential burglary.

James Tarrant, 44, pleaded guilty Tuesday in front of McHenry County Judge Sharon L. Prather, who also sentenced him to two years of supervised release.

Tarrant was arrested in September 2011, in connection with a string of burglaries in Rock County, Wis., and McHenry, Boone, Ogle and Winnebago counties, police said at the time.

The local charges stemmed from a burglary at a Marengo home that year, prosecutors said.
