An 18-year-old Jacksonville man was sentenced this week to a total of 25 years in prison on multiple weapon offenses.

Jonathan Bleboo Jr. Pleaded guilty in December to charges of home invasion robbery with a firearm, armed burglary, possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent found to have committed a felony act, aggravated fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer, reckless driving causing damage, and resisting an officer without violence.

In October, Bleboo committed a series of crimes. In the first incident, Bleboo and his two co-defendants invaded the home of a couple and their three children. Bleboo held an AR-15 to both of the victims' heads while the others stole their belongings.

Three days later, Bleboo was involved in another incident in which he broke into another home while the victim was sleeping and fired his gun at the victim before escaping.

Later, officers spotted Bleboo driving carelessly down University Club Boulevard. After they initiated a traffic stop, the Bleboo fled in his vehicle, causing an accident. He then continued to flee on foot until he was eventually detained by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
