A 49-year-old man who has spent most of his adult life in Florida prisons will spend the rest of his life behind bars for his role in an armed burglary in East Naples in 2009.

At a hearing in Collier County Circuit Court on Thursday, Judge Franklin Baker sentenced Daniel Lee Lowe to life in prison on a charge of first-degree burglary while armed. In the same courtoom May 17, a jury found Lowe guilty of the charge as well as one count of grand theft and two counts of grand theft with a firearm.

Baker adjudicated Lowe guilty and sentenced him as a prison release reoffender. The judge also ordered Lowe to serve five years in prison on each of his grand theft charges. Due to the prison release reoffender designation, Lowe's sentence of life is mandatory, with no hope of parole or early release.
