BELTON — A man who was shot while breaking into a Killeen home in December was sentenced in a Bell County courtroom Monday morning.

Jonathan Logan Schock, 23, of Killeen, was sentenced by Judge John Ganutt to five years of deferred adjudication for burglary of a habitation.

Killeen police found Schock on the floor of a home in the 2000 block of White Avenue just after 2:25 a.m. Dec. 29, according to an arrest affidavit.

A female resident said she and another male saw Schock open a window and began yelling at them as he tried to enter the residence.

Despite being told to leave, Schock entered the residence and grabbed the woman, pushing her into a wall.

Another male resident was present and told Schock to stop the assault and leave the residence or he would be shot, the affidavit stated.

A witness told police he heard one of the men tell Schock to leave at least six times.

Schock’s attorney, Thomas Seigman, told Ganutt that his client was a veteran, and had no previous criminal history. Seigman said alcohol played a role in the events of that night, and indicated that Schock had learned his lesson.

“He lives with the scars,” Seigman said.

Deferred adjudication functions in a similar way to probation.

If Schock successfully adheres to the terms of the probation, he will not face a conviction.

Should he violate those terms, he would face the full range of punishment for his crime. Burglary of a habitation is a second-degree felony, which carries a punishment range of two to 20 years in prison.
