One defendant charged in connection with the April 6 burglary of Hardee's pleaded guilty and received a suspended sentence Monday, while the second defendant is set for a July 2 plea-taking.
Stephen Mack, 27, of Spencer, was convicted of third degree burglary, a class D felony, according to court documents. His suspended sentence includes up to five years in prison, a $750 fine and a $262.50 surcharge.
Third Judicial District Judge Patrick M. Carr ordered Mack to pay up to $1,200 for his court-appointed attorney, $140 in court costs, the Law Enforcement Initiative Surcharge of $125 and correctional fees to be set at a later date.
Mack was also ordered to pay $399.65 in pecuniary damages to Hardee's.
In addition to paying restitution, Mack will be placed on probation with the Third Judicial District Department of Correctional Services, ordered to comply with any evaluations and treatments and actively seek and maintain verifiable employment.
A plea-taking for Terrance Jackson, 24, of Spencer, is set for 10 a.m. on July 2.
"It appears that he and the county attorney have now reached an agreement pursuant to which he will plead guilty," Carr wrote in a court order filed May 22.
Carr also directed Jackson to file his waiver of speedy trial, which Jackson did May 25.
He is also facing a charge of third degree burglary.
