BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- One of two suspects in a violent Greenbush home invasion last fall that left a woman badly injured -- pleaded guilty to all charges Monday in a Penobscot County courtroom. However at the same time the suspect denied having an active role in the assault that took place during the robbery.

Ryan Petrin pleaded guilty to charges that included two counts of assault and one count of burglary. Authorities say he and 23-year-old Nicholas Hutchinson broke into the home of Marcia Fieger of Greenbush Labor Day weekend last September. Investigators say they beat Fieger with a tire iron and fire extinguisher and also used a taser in the attack before making off with drugs and money.

On Monday Petrin pleaded guilty to having a role in the robbery but denied striking Fieger during the attack. In open court, Fieger argued that wasn't true.

"If they're {Petrin and Hutchinson} going to be remorseful then be remorseful for what they did," she said outside of court, "Take responsibility for everything that went on that night..not just the half truths."

A judge is scheduling a hearing that will determine Petrin's role in the attack. Under the terms of his plea deal, he could serve up to 12 years in prison with all but seven suspended and also be on probation for four years.

At this point the case against Nicholas Hutchinson is still pending.
