The victim of the burglary originally named Warren as a suspect, saying that Warren was a friend from school and had visited the victim’s home recently.  

The Solicitor’s Office also said days after the burglary, Warren was alleged to have been involved in a police shooting that injured a Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office deputy.  

Charges are still pending in the Rutherford County case.  

Circuit Judge Donald Hocker sentenced Warren to 20 years in prison for the burglary.   

The Solicitor’s Office said Warren will serve 85 percent of the sentence before he is eligible for release.  

Warren’s prior criminal record includes convictions for lewd act on a minor, second-degree burglary, property crimes and drug offenses, according to the Solicitor’s Office.
