A local woman charged in the Aug. 2014 home-invasion robbery of her then-67-year-old former roommate has been sentenced to four years and six months in state prison, and 10 years of drug-offender probation.

Carisa Hall, now 23, pleaded no contest to a charge of burglary with an assault or battery and was adjudicated guilty. She was sentenced Feb. 19, State Attorney's Office spokesman Spencer Hathaway said.

Hall was arrested along with Daniel Evans, 27, who muscled his way into Hall's former roommate's house after he got the victim, Pamela Berdebes, to open the front door by falsely identifying himself as Hall's former boyfriend.

Once inside, Evans knocked the 67-year-old woman to the floor and threatened to kill her if she looked at him. He was on a cell phone, talking with someone who seemed to be giving him directions. “She said you have pills,” Evans said to Berdebes.

Evans took money and credit cards from Berdebes’ purse and ran. Surveillance footage of gas stations where Evans tried to use the card showed him in a Ford Freestyle registered to Hall's mother. 

Deputies found the car just two-tenths of a mile from the last place Evans had tried to use the cards. They arrested both Evans and Hall on a charge of home-invasion robbery, and both entered pleas of no contest.

Evans was sentenced to six years in prison and 10 years of drug offender probation on Jan. 25.
