District Attorney Todd Williams said a habitual felon who attacked a homeowner with a shotgun while burglarizing the house will spend more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to several felony charges. 

On Monday, a judge ordered Jason Alexander Trexler to serve between 66 and 92 months in prison after Trexler pleaded guilty to felony breaking and entering, common law robbery, and possession of firearm by a felon.

On March 16, 2016 Trexler broke into a home on Milk Sick Cove Road in Candler. The homeowner returned while Trexler was inside the home and Trexler hit the homeowner with a shotgun, stealing both the gun and a camera.

Trexler then pawned the gun in Cherokee.

During the police investigation, investigators connected Trexler to other open crimes and said he admitted his involvement.

Trexler had been previously convicted of several of larcenies and various drug offenses dating back to 2003.
