Douglas County District Attorney Suzanne Valdez today announced that Michael Alexander Hormell of Lawrence today pled to amended charges of burglary of a dwelling, a Level 7 person felony, and two counts of criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, each being Level 8 non-person felonies.
