A 19-year-old Lawrence man will serve one year on probation for convictions related to several auto burglaries in April.
Douglas County District Judge Jack Murphy sentenced Ricky Allen Davis Jr. Monday after Davis had pleaded no contest in June and was convicted of three counts of felony auto burglary.
Before the plea, prosecutors had dropped four misdemeanor theft charges and four other felony burglary charges. He received probation based on the state's sentencing guidelines, which factor in severity of the offense and criminal history.
Police had accused Davis of breaking into cars near Clinton Parkway and Iowa Street, and officers arrested him with a duffel bag that included tools, loose change and a carton of cigarettes.
Murphy ordered $24.50 in restitution. Cheryl Wright, a district attorney's office spokeswoman, said other property has been returned.
Defense attorney Courtney Henderson said Davis began the process for his probation Monday and that he was ready to move forward. If he violates his probation term, Davis would serve a year in prison.
