Confessed home invader sentenced to 12 years in prison

Prince Frederick, MD - According to Calvert County State's Attorney Andrew Rappaport, Ijaaz Butler, 26 of St. Leonard, was sentenced in the Circuit Court for Calvert County for a home invasion committed in Lusby. The sentence was handed down April 22.

On March 16, 2018 officers responded to a home in Lusby where it was reported that Butler had kicked in the front door of the residence and entered the bedroom where the victim was sleeping. Butler was allegedly armed with a shotgun. After realizing the person he was looking for was not at the residence, Butler fled the scene. 

After an investigation by the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, Butler was later apprehended. He entered a plea to the home invasion in February 2019. 

Butler was sentenced by Judge Chandlee to 25 years Division of Corrections with all but 12 years suspended. He was given an additional five years for probation violations.  Upon his release, he will be on five years of supervised probation.
