A Mt. Vernon man received his sentencing in court on Wednesday after burglarizing multiple homes in Vanderburgh County and Posey County, according to the prosecutor's office.

The Posey County Prosecutor's Office says 36-year-old Daniel M. Farris was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Wednesday by Judge Craig Goedde.

Wednesday's sentencing came after Farris had previously pleaded guilty to two separate charges of burglary, as well as multiple charges of theft and residential entry.

As part of his guilty plea, Farris admitted to breaking and entering multiple residences in Posey County in February of 2020.

According to the prosecutor's office, on February 22, 2020, an investigation conducted by multiple law enforcement agencies led to Farris as the primary suspect of the burglaries.

Upon his arrest, Farris confessed to breaking into multiple 2 residences in Posey and Vanderburgh County. Farris stated that he acted alone. Law enforcement was able to recover several items that were stolen in the burglaries.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
