Troy Moses was sentenced in Starke Circuit Court on Thursday after pleaded guilty in a plea agreement with the state to a charge of Receiving Stolen Property, a Class D felony.
Moses admitted that he received stolen tools and sold them at First Choice Pawn in Knox. He was arrested on March 29 for the crime. The tools were eventually returned so restitution was not requested in this case.
Judge Kim Hall sentenced Moses to 24 months in the Indiana Department of Corrections with 12 months suspended to be served on probation. The rest of his executed sentence will be served on home detention with electronic monitoring through Starke County Community Corrections. He will remain in the Starke County Jail until Community Corrections has a chance to evaluate him for the program.
The victim asked the prosecutor to include at least 40 hours of community service as part of the plea agreement and Judge Hall sentenced him to 100 hours of community service. He was also recommended Moses to participate in the Thinking for a Change program through Starke County Community Corrections.
