Thief sentenced to jail time, probation

A Fergus Falls man who stole $3,500 worth of movies and other items was sentenced Monday in Otter Tail County District Court.

Chad Parker Ice, 21, was sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years of supervised probation for felony third-degree burglary. He pleaded guilty Feb. 28. In exchange for the plea, additional charges of felony second-degree burglary, felony theft and gross misdemeanor theft were dismissed.

District Judge Mark Hansen issued a stay of adjudication in the case, which is essentially a deal with the court and defendant which allows an admitted guilty party to have the opportunity to never be formally convicted of the crime as long as the defendant agrees to abide by the court’s guidelines.
