Amy Melinda Fletcher Mullins, 38 was sentenced by Wise County Circuit Court Judge John C. Kilgore for her role in a string of burglaries in late 2015 and early 2016. She had previously pleaded guilty to six counts of burglary, one count of breaking and entering, six counts of grand larceny, three counts of grand larceny of a firearm and one count of petit larceny.
A co-defendant, Jason Mullins, 35, received a 19-year sentenced in June.
County Commonwealth’s Attorney Chuck Slemp said Amy Mullins burglarized seven locations, including family residences, between Dec. 24, 2015 and Feb. 11, 2016. She scoped out each location beforehand and time the entry when she thought no one would be home, Slemp said. Then using a crowbar and wire cutters, she made entry.
Slemp said that once inside, she took cash, personal belongings, firearms, and $30,000 to $40,000 worth in jewelry.
Authorities later learned that Amy Mullins knew some of the victims and that she was even a bridesmaid in one of the victims' weddings.
