A 28-year-old Madison man will serve time in jail on a burglary charge. Christopher Nightpipe-Potter was sentenced this week in Lake County Circuit Court on one count each of First Degree Burglary and First Offense Driving Under the Influence, offenses that he was arrested for in March of 2019. Circuit Judge Pat Pardy sentenced Nightpipe-Potter to serve five years in the state penitentiary on the burglary charge. The judge suspended the sentence on the condition that he be on probation for six years. He also must serve 120 days in the Lake County Jail, with credit for one day previously served. Nightpipe-Potter also must pay a fine of five-hundred dollars plus court costs, repay his court-appointed attorney’s fees, and pay restitution to the victim in the case of close to 13-hundred dollars. Judge Pardy also placed several other conditions on his suspended sentence.
For the DUI charge, Judge Pardy sentenced Nightpipe-Potter to serve 30 days in jail and pay a fine of 500-dollars, plus court costs. The judge suspended the jail time on the condition that he pay the fine and costs, obey all laws, and have his driver’s license revoked for 30 days after his release from jail.
