A Lincoln man was sentenced Thursday to a year in jail for possession of stolen items that included Husker memorabilia.
Police arrested 21 year-old Terique Jackson after he was reported to be holding three Husker championship rings, a watch and a .22-caliber handgun in a backpack.
Jackson was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of stolen property and two misdemeanors after police responded to a tip that he had tried to sell some of the items reported stolen in March 2012.
Jackson will be eligible for release after serving 88 days and will receive credit for 23 days already served.
Police say owner of the property, Bill Shepard, worked for UNL's athletic department for more than 50 years. He discovered the theft when he came home and found his place ransacked.
Police say a total of 17 Nebraska championship rings, 14 bowl watches and five guns were stolen from Shepard. Police are still trying to recover some of the items.
