A young man with an already lengthy criminal record will be spending more time behind bars.
Brook McCargar, 26, was given an additional 22-month sentence Wednesday for a violent home invasion at a North End home in January 2009.
McCargar pleaded guilty to a charge of break and enter and possessing a prohibited weapon.
Court was told McCargar and three others decided to rob a man they believed to be a drug dealer and take his stash and any valuables.
While a fourth man waited in a car, McCargar and two others forced their way into the Selkirk Avenue home at night, all three armed with sawed-off shotguns and wearing masks because their target knew who they were.
There were several people in the home at the time, all high after doing methamphetamines for several days leading up to the robbery. A child was also in the home.
McCargar's accomplices beat the drug dealer, who managed to fight back against his attackers.
At one point, someone's shotgun was discharged into a television. No one was hurt.
McCargar and his accomplices fled but were arrested two days later.
McCargar had been in custody since his arrest in January 2009.
While in custody, he assaulted a corrections officers in February 2010 and was given a 41-month sentence for that offence.
Justice Shawn Greenberg said McCargar will serve his remaining 22 months after he's finished serving the 41-month sentence.
