Man Faces Prison For Sneaking Into Homes, Watching Sleepers
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — A man nicknamed the "sleeper creeper" for sneaking into people's bedrooms could face a maximum of up to 30 years in prison when he's sentenced for burglary and criminal mischief.
Ramiz Hajratalli was found guilty of two counts of burglary and two counts of criminal mischief in Saratoga County Court on Tuesday. He'll be sentenced on April 26.
The 32-year-old former insurance company supervisor stood trial after his arrest for entering homes in Saratoga Springs and watching people sleep. He had rejected a plea deal that would have sent him to prison for seven years.
He was arrested in August after he went into the bedroom of a retired police detective who woke up and chased him down the street, then held him for police.
