ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A man who terrorized people in the small community of To'Hajiilee is going to prison for a very long time.
Jerome Yazzie, 37, was sentenced to 40 years in federal prison Tuesday.
In June 2011 he forced his 15-year-old daughter and her 18-year-old boyfriend to accompany him as he burglarized homes, robbed people and even kidnapped a young man at gunpoint.
This is not Yazzie's first brush with the law. He's been convicted more than a dozen times for a range of crimes.
His past played a role in the long prison sentence he got.
In September a U.S. District Court jury convicted Yazzie on burglary, robbery, kidnapping and firearms charges.
