Dexter Man to Prison After Forcing His Way Inside Cambridge Home

CAMBRIDGE, Maine (WABI) - A man from Dexter will serve 5 years in prison after breaking into a woman's home in Cambridge.

49-year-old Mark Meech was sentenced earlier this week.

He pleaded guilty to burglary last month.

In August, he parked his truck in a field, walked to the woman's home on Dexter Road and told her his truck had broken down.

She opened the door a bit and tried to hand him a phone, then he forced his way inside.

Police say he attacked the woman and planned to sexually assault her.

Meech was later arrested at his home.
