Suspect sentenced to 34 years in prison for Gates Mills home invasion

GATES MILLS, OH (WOIO) - Shaun Corrigan, the man charged with the January Gates Mills home invasion, was sentenced to 34 years in prison on Wednesday morning.

Corrigan was sentenced at the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas on charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, felonious assault, and kidnapping for the Jan. 6 incident.

Police said Corrigan charged into the female victim's home and choked her until she cooperated. He then duct-taped her hands and threatened her with a box cutter while gathering money and property from her home. Eventually, the woman was able to escape after the suspect left her home and she called police.

He was later arrested on Jan. 17 in Mayfield Heights. He apparently is a known heroin addict.

During the sentencing hearing, the home invasion victim, her husband, and the Mayor of Gates Mills spoke in court.
