The getaway driver in a August 2011 armed home invasion east of Hatley will spend 13 years in prison and 10 years on extended supervision.

In July 2012, a jury found Ademus Saechao, who went by the nickname “Kung fu Panda”, guilty of seven felonies related to the incident.

Prosecutors say the robbery victims were tied up during the crime with vacuum cords. Several shotguns, rifles, handguns and a samurai sword were taken in the crime.

Saechao, 22, was arrested in November 2011 during a traffic stop in Green Bay.

He will receive credit for the 444 days.

Joseph Rohmeyer IV, 18, is also charged in the home invasion. His jury trial is scheduled to begin in May.
