MASON CITY | A Mason City man has been sentenced to a year in jail for possessing and selling stolen jewelry. 

Police in June said Jonathan Earl Rieman, 45, possessed $15,530 in jewelry taken from a residence in the 1800 block of 12th Street Northeast. 

He was accused of selling the items to two jewelers in Mason City, according to a Mason City Police Department criminal complaint. 

Rieman was initially charged with felony first-degree theft. 

In October, he entered a written plea of guilty in Cerro Gordo County District Court to an amended, lesser charge, misdemeanor fourth-degree theft. 

In addition to the jail time, Judge Karen Salic sentenced Rieman to one year probation and ordered him to pay a $315 fine.
