WOODBURY — Andrew Kramer, 24, of Deptford, was sentenced Friday to spend 10 years in state prison for an armed home invasion robbery of a 69-year-old Mantua woman.
Kramer tied her up, took her bank card, forced her to give him her PIN, then told her “if it’s not right, I’ll come back and kill you,” the woman testified. “It makes you a little paranoid.”
Kramer also took the engagement ring her late husband had given her in 1964.
“To have it taken away has brought so much grief because of what it signified to me,” the woman said.
Kramer was an acquaintance to a relative of the victim. He was arrested three days after the Nov. 1, 2013 robbery and has been in jail since. He pleaded guilty on Jan. 30.
Kramer will serve 85 percent of his 10-year perm before being eligible for parole.
He was also sentenced to two prison terms of 365 days and another of three years, all to run at the same time, related to operating an unregistered cesspool service that failed to complete work in 2011 and 2012 for which two Mantua residents and one from East Greenwich had paid.
Another 365 day concurrent sentence was imposed for theft of equipment from a landscaper who employed Kramer. He owes a total of nearly $10,000 in restitution.
The judge said Kramer needs “substantial and lasting treatment” for his drug abuse or he will become a repeat offender.
