A man who pawned over $1,000 worth of property he stole during the burglary of a McClain Road home has been released on time served.
The defendant, Charles Richard Anderson Jr., 25, was given an 11-month, 29-day sentence but released on time served for theft and aggravated criminal trespass. He was also directed to serve make restitution and undergo a mental evaluation.
