In other court business, Shane J. Perreira, 31, of Greenville, entered a change of plea Monday, withdrawing his previous not guilty plea and entering a plea of guilty to two counts of breaking and entering, fifth-degree felonies.

The charges carry a maximum penalty of 12 months in prison and $2,500 in fines on each count.

Perreira originally was charged with two counts of breaking and entering as well as one count of disrupting a public service, a fourth-degree felony, for cutting the power lines at 1725 Wagner Ave. on April 21, 2013.
