Readfield man pleads guilty to robbing homes of Jehovah's Witnesses while they are at church

AUGUSTA, Maine — A Readfield man authorities say robbed the homes of Jehovah's Witnesses when he knew they were at church meetings has pleaded guilty to multiple burglary and theft charges.


Jarrod Bilodeau admitted Thursday in Kennebec County Superior Court to stealing jewelry and other items from homes in Augusta, Farmingdale, Vassalboro, Wayne and Winthrop, between Nov. 17 and Dec. 12.

The prosecutor said the victims considered the 27-year-old Bilodeau family.

The Kennebec Journal ( http://bit.ly/Q8NnfD ) reports that Bilodeau will be sentenced later this month so the judge can hear from victims.

Prosecutors and Bilodeau's attorney recommended a sentence of four years in jail with all but six months suspended and three years of probation.

I'm intrigued by what the article says about the victims 'considering him to be family.' Was he actually related to the victims or was he just acquainted with them perhaps as a bible study or unbelieving mate? Or someone on the fringe of the congregation?

Whatever the case, it's a reminder to be cautious about those in our midst.
