ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) -- A man has been sentenced to at least nine years in prison for stealing from a Lenawee County couple who opened their home to him when he was homeless.
Among the stolen items was a football signed by the 2011 University of Michigan football team for the deceased brother of homeowner Scott Jeffrey. Jason Hall's sentence was delayed last month so he could try to recover the football but it was sold.
Hall was also accused of stealing money, televisions, jewelry and checks while he was living with the Macon Township couple. Police say he subsequently broke into the home after moving out in 2011.
The Daily Telegram in Adrian says Lenawee County Judge Timothy Pickard sentenced Hall above the usual guidelines Friday.
