LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - An intruder who beat an elderly man with a cane will spend 25 years in prison.

It it was around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when Jaffice Harris received his sentence. On Tuesday, 20-year-old Jaffice Harris pleaded guilty to burglary with the intent to commit aggravated assault after being accused of beating an elderly Lubbock man with his own cane.

Harris broke into a home in the 3800 block of 48th Street, and struck Kenneth Forson repeatedly with his cane. Forson, who will be 75-years-old on June 30, suffered a concussion, bruises, and a broken rib. Police arrested Harris across town in connection with an attempted purse snatching at 50th and Avenue Q.

Justice for the victim came one week after Ken Forson buried his wife, Doris. She passed away last week.

Harris and his attorney both say they are pleased with the punishment.
