Watertown man sentenced to probation for Arsenal Street burglary


A Watertown man was sentenced Tuesday in Jefferson County Court to five years’ probation for burglarizing an occupied Arsenal Street home in January.

John T. Milazzo, 23, was sentenced after a March 20 guilty plea to third-degree burglary. He admitted that on Jan. 26, he, along with Jeffrey R. Smith, entered the Coffeen Street residence of Brittany L. Camidge with the intent to commit a crime. Police said at the time of his arrest that Mr. Smith possessed a baseball bat during the intrusion.

Mr. Smith, 25, Watertown, pleaded guilty April 2 to third-degree burglary for his role in the break-in and was sentenced May 3 to one to three years in state prison.

In other court activity:

Rodney G. Harsh II, 25, address not available, was sentenced to an unspecified amount of time served at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building and five years’ probation after an April 19 guilty plea to third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance. He admitted that he tried to sell cocaine Jan. 18 within the county. His probation supervision is expected to be transferred to Pennsylvania.

Jeffrey L. Doxtater, 43, of 35319 Coolidge Road, Philadelphia, pleaded guilty to felony aggravated driving while intoxicated. He admitted that he drove May 5 on Carpenter Road in the town of Antwerp with a blood alcohol content of 0.23 percent. A BAC of 0.08 percent or more is considered proof of intoxication under state law. Aggravated DWI is charged when the BAC is 0.18 percent or more. He was charged with a felony because he had prior misdemeanor DWI conviction in 2003 in Antwerp Town Court.

He is expected to be sentenced Aug. 28 to a three-year conditional discharge and be ordered to complete the Bridge program. He will also be fined $2,500, have his driver’s license revoked and be ordered to install an ignition interlock device on any vehicle he owns or operates.
