A Hyannis man pleaded guilty on Wednesday  to a litany of charges in the Barnstable Superior Court, the Cape Cod Times reported.

Ethan Woodward, 22, pleaded guilty to 12 counts of breaking and entering in the daytime with intent to commit a felony, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, vandalizing property and resisting arrest, the Times wrote.

Woodward was sentenced to five years in state prison and three years of supervised probation and will have to pay $14,000 in restitution, according to a statement from Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe's office.

Over the span of three months, the 22-year-old was connected to 12 home break-ins within Hyannis.

This was news on Wednesday, as reported Wednesday by other news outlets. Today, it is just a waste of time... I guess I will be done with Patch. What a shame. If I ever need to find a cooking class or what book is being read at the local library, I'll know right where to look. Otherwise, it was a great start, Patch...but you took a promising media start-up and wasted it. So sorry to see you die off so soon.

Couldn't have said it better. Censors at Patch removed my last post, it being complimentary of the former editors and critical of the new "group". No four letter words, just an openly critical statement of why Patch is so much worse than it was before.

From the internet: Patch Editor:’From What I See On The Ground, We Are On Our Last Legs’ (Romenesko) “Patch 2.0, the new site design that was supposed to revolutionize what we’re doing somehow has done little more than alienate our readers by decreasing the amount of news we can convey to them and infuriate Local Editors by removing tools we frequently used for our jobs,” said a local editor for Patch. “The leadership of this company continues to congratulate itself on what a good job it’s doing while I am left to deal with angry locals, upset at things outside of my control.”

Lead, follow, or get out of the way. in the news industry reporting old news is considered plagiarism or just simple laziness. You can LEAD by hiring competent people such as reporters, writers and marketing assistants. or you can FOLLOW by copying other news outlets just to save face. or you can GET OUT OF THE WAY by calling this what it is......... With that said I'm am going to give it another month and if I'm not satisfied I will unsubscribe.

I researched the internet after reading Stumpy's last diatribe, and I have to agree that it looks like the end is not near but here for Patch. It seems that they have taken many hundreds of locally developed territories and canned most of the people who built them up, asked a few to take on many and feed them a bunch of crummy articles to juggle. The Patch we all knew is gone and so will be most of its former followers. Remember Tandy, Netscape, pro-dos, the Twist and the Frug? We will be saying that about Patch in a few years. Adios, au revoir, auf wiedersehen: any way you say it, it's taps for Patch!

Read the fourth word in this article I mean seriously "peaded" or Pleaded, at least hire an editor. or turn the whole thing over to the BHS journalism class if they still have it.

I think that they have one at the middle school. The Patchees should have seventh grade skills in journalism...... in a few years.
