New City home invader gets 10 years in prison

A Bronx man is going to prison for a 2011 home invasion robbery in New City, Rockland County's chief prosecutor said Wednesday.

Rockland District Attorney Thomas Zugibe said County Court Judge William K. Nelson sentenced Nicholas Michaud, 24, of 2611 Paulding Ave., to 10 years in prison, plus five years post-release supervision, after Michaud pleaded guilty to felony first-degree burglary.

Zugibe said that on or about May 6, 2011, Michaud and another person broke into a residence on Barbara Road in New City. There, Michaud displayed what appeared to be a gun to a resident, stole two laptop computers from the home and fled.
