A 20-year-old Lincoln man has been given nearly a year in jail on a theft charge.
Tremain Berks pleaded no contest to theft by receiving stolen property. Authorities say Berks had been selling computers stolen from a Lincoln elementary school in 2011.
Berks' attorney, Bob Creager, says there wasn't any evidence that tied Berks to the burglary of about $30,000 worth of Apple computers and some projectors from Belmont Elementary School. But in court on Tuesday, Creager acknowledged that Berks was implicated in what happened to the stolen goods.
Lancaster County District Judge Jodi Nelson told Berks that he'd essentially taken no responsibility for what he did. Nelson gave Berks 360 days in jail.
