Prosecutors say the 22-year-old Martin sold stolen Newton valuables to a pawn shop. Martin has previous burglary-related and firearms convictions and was serving up to six years in prison for violating probation and being a felon in possession of a gun.
He faced up to life in prison as a habitual criminal. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports a judge Tuesday decided Martin should serve a maximum of 64 years. Newton and his wife said the crimes had changed their lives and Newton said he was still angry at the thief.
