A 54-year-old Maspeth man is facing nine years in prison after pleading guilty to burglary charges in connection with a series of residential break-ins.

According to Queens Country District Attorney Richard Brown, Juan Cuervo of 56th Street, is accused of burglarizing nine different homes in a number of Queens neighborhoods, including Elmhurst and Flushing.

“In pleading guilty, the defendant has admitted to brazenly breaking into several homes across a wide swath in Queens County,” Brown said in a statement. “The defendant not only invaded the victim’s personal and private spaces, but he ransacked their homes and stole their possessions. The defendant will be incarcerated for his actions.”
