Sorrells Gets 10 Years for Burglary, Theft

- A Wichita Falls teenager partially paralyzed in a motorcycle accident last year who's been in and out of jail ever since is sentenced to prison time after being found guilty of several charges.

Eighteen-year-old David Clayton Sorrells was found guilty of theft under $20-thousand, theft of property, and two counts of burglary of a habitation.

He's sentenced to 10 years in prison.

He'll receive 64 days credit for time served in jail while awaiting trial.

Authorities say he burglarized a home's back shop, located in the 1800 block of McKinney Road, in July.

Sorrells was arrested after he tried to sell back some of the stolen property to someone who knew about the burglary.

He was previously indicted over accusations of stealing a motorcycle, which he crashed.

Police say in August, he was riding a stolen motorcycle on Fairway when he was struck by a car driven by 26-year-old Connard Lee Riddles III.

Riddles was sentenced to three years for causing an accident involving injury.

Sorrells was not wearing a helmet and underwent two brain surgeries.
