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.
