A 24-year-old Mount Vernon man was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges stemming from the summer 2011 beating and robbery of an Anacortes man at his home.
Kelly Hackstock pleaded guilty in Skagit County Superior Court recently to first-degree assault. He was the final of three defendants in the case to plead guilty.
The three men invaded a man’s Gibralter Road home June 19, 2011, and beat him. The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with a fractured skull after an extensive assault involving several weapons, including a jigsaw, court documents say.
Bryon Lourenco, 24, pleaded guilty in May to second-degree assault, first-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit robbery, all felonies. His charges were reduced in a plea agreement. He was sentenced to more than seven years in prison.
Benjamin Lourenco, 25, pleaded guilty the same day to first-degree burglary and rendering criminal assistance as part of a plea agreement. It requires him to cooperate with prosecution. He has not yet been sentenced but prosecutors recommend three years.
The victim told deputies he was downstairs when two masked men, later identified as Kelly Hackstock and Bryon Lourenco, came into the room wearing all black. The burglars stole money, a flat screen television, a PlayStation 3, a snowboard and some marijuana.
The victim told deputies he saw a third person, later identified as Benjamin Lourenco, in a red Ford truck in the driveway.
Law enforcement found more than 50 marijuana plants and more than half a pound of processed marijuana in the victim’s home. The state allows those with medical marijuana authorization to have 15 plants per person.
