Final accomplice sentenced in connection with violent burglary

A Monroe woman is sentenced to almost 20 years in prison for her role in a violent home invasion.

21-year-old Sarah Ann Buckingham plead guilty to operating a vehicle without the owners consent, and party to the crimes of armed robbery and felony theft of firearms.

In January of 2013, Christopher Kimps and Jesse Adams broke into a town of Fulton home, tied up the residents, beat them, and stole guns, cash, and a vehicle.

Authorities say Buckingham and another woman, Kayla Pearson, helped plan the crime, and dropped the two men off at the house the night of the burglary. She was also driving the stolen getaway car, when police apprehended the four in the Wisconsin Dells area a few days later.

Buckingham was sentenced to a total of 18 years in prison with 12 years of extended supervision.

Buckingham's three accomplices received sentences ranging from 18 to 33 years.
