Cross-dressing woman sentenced to 30 years for home invasion

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -  Accused  home invader Maricela Rodriguez has been found guilty today after a three-day trial in the 241st District Court in Smith County.

Rodriguez broke into a Tyler home in April of this year, disguised as a man.  She forced a mother and her three children into a bedroom,  tying  them up with duct tape. 

The family was eventually able to escape through a window in that bedroom with no serious injuries.

After her arrest, Rodriguez reportedly told police she had broken into the wrong house.

Maricela was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
