FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Frederick man has been sentenced to five years in prison for conspiracy for three assaults during a home invasion in 2009.

Michael Johnson, 21, was sentenced on Wednesday in Frederick County Circuit Court. His twin brother, Malcolm Johnson, is serving a three-year-term in the crime.

Three women were threatened with a handgun during the invasion.

The mother of one of the victims said in court that she barely recognized her daughter after the crime because she had been kicked in the face until bloodied.

    Only 5 years for invading someones home with a hand gun and assaulting the home owners,very sad. I thought when using a hand gun while committing a felony was an automatic 5 years just on the gun charge. I guess these young men are really good guys,and just misunderstood!

    This is not right. The procecutor should appeal this sentence and ask for more. They probably plea bargained. Plea bargining should be eliminated. These individuals will be back out in 5 years and will be in trouble again. I just hope that they do not go looking for the same persons from the Home Invasion.
