A Rochester man has been sentenced to almost 5 years in prison for a burglary conviction involving a dangerous weapon.

29-year-old Benjamin McQuay entered a guilty plea to the charge in April through a plea agreement that led to the dismissal of felony assault charges and illegal possession of a firearm. He was accused of breaking into a home and threatening two women with a gun. One of the victims is the mother of McQuay's child. He was also given prison sentences today for another burglary conviction, a felony drug possession charge, and a conviction for violating a no-contact order. 

In those cases, he is being allowed to serve those sentences concurrently with the 57-month prison term he was given for the first-degree burglary conviction involving the handgun. His sentence also runs concurrently with the prison term he is currently serving for domestic assault convictions.
