Wisconsin men sentenced for stealing diapers from charity

Posted July 14

— Two men accused of stealing 100,000 diapers from a charity in Wisconsin have been sentenced to jail time.

WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/2v030Ba ) reports that Jason Havel was sentenced Thursday to nine months in jail. His co-defendant, John Forbes, was given the same sentence in June.

The two men also must pay a total of about $30,000 in restitution.

Police in Fox Crossing said the men stole the diapers from a charity that provides goods to needy families. The thefts occurred at a warehouse in January and February. Authorities said the men hoped to make money off the stolen goods.

Fox Crossing is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Milwaukee.
