Man gets 15 years for stalking, breaking in home

Feb 4, 2011 7:06:00 AM - thestate.com
South Carolina prosecutors say a 15-year prison sentence for a man who broke into a woman's home after she obtained an order of protection against him shows they will seek harsh punishment for victims of harassment.

Authorities say 60-year-old Thomas Gilliland was found guilty Wednesday of first-degree burglary and violating an order of protection.

Investigators say a woman found Gilliland in her home after she got home from work in March. She was given a restraining order against Gilliland the month before.

Prosecutors say the woman testified against Gilliland.
