A would be burglar is charged with breaking into LL Cool J’s home Wednesday morning and is
facing a very long prison sentence if he is convicted due to his prior convictions. Jonathan Kirby, 56, suffered a broken nose, jaw and ribs after breaking into the rappers sherman oaks home according to Los Angeles County District Attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons. Kirby is charged with first degree burglary and this is a third strike for him, which means he could face up to 38 years in prison if convicted. His bail has been set at $1.1 million. Kirby’s previous convictions include voluntary manslaughter in Dallas, Texas, in 1988 as well as auto theft and petty theft. Arraignment is not set yet as the suspect is still in the hospital after the altercation and is being treated for his injuries. The rappers family was sleeping when their home alarm went off at 1:00 am. He was detained by Cool J until the police arrived shortly after.
