Ohio’s Robert Carr has agreed to a plea guilty to one count of breaking and entering as part of a plea deal in connection with his attempt to claim seven empty homes.
The Ohio man who identified himself as a “sovereign citizen” in defending his attempt to steal 11 homes struck a plea deal on Monday not long after his girlfriend indicated she planned to testify against him.
WLWT-TV reported that Robert Carr reluctantly pled guilty to one count of breaking and entering as part of the agreement. He faces up to a year in prison in an upcoming sentencing hearing.
Carr was indicted by a grand jury in December 2013 after “rejecting” an arrest warrant on breaking and entering charges.
He had reportedly found the empty homes in the Cincinnati area, then attempted to file “quiet titles” over them, including seven claims in one day.
