WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A 19-year-old Winston-Salem man pleaded guilty for his role in a home invasion in which he and two others broke into a house, put a gun in a 2-year-old girl’s mouth and threatened to shoot her, her younger sister and her mother.

Herbert Juwan Fullard pleaded guilty Tuesday in Forsyth County Superior Court to first-degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, felony breaking and entering, felony larceny, larceny of a motor vehicle and breaking and entering of a motor vehicle.

He also entered what is known as an Alford plea to sexual battery, which means he did not admit guilt but acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.

Judge Edgar Gregory sentenced Fullard to 11 years and eight months to 15 years and six months in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Matt Breeding said Fullard and two other teenagers, Eric Christopher Davis and Christopher Rashawn Nelson, broke into a 29-year-old woman’s home in June.
