Mar. 01, 2018
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — A man nicknamed the "sleeper creeper" for sneaking into people's bedrooms could face a maximum of up to 30 years in prison when he's sentenced for burglary and criminal mischief.
Ramiz Hajratalli (rah-MEEZ hahj-rah-TAL-ee) was found guilty of two counts of burglary and two counts of criminal mischief in Saratoga County Court on Tuesday. He'll be sentenced on April 26.
The 32-year-old former insurance company supervisor stood trial after his arrest for entering homes in Saratoga Springs and watching people sleep. He had rejected a plea deal that would have sent him to prison for seven years.
He was arrested in August after he went into the bedroom of a retired police detective who woke up and chased him down the street, then held him for police.
