Jeffery Allen Wilson, 27, of Fergus Falls, was sentenced Aug. 12 in Otter Tail County District Court to 15 months in prison, to be stayed for five years, and 90 days in jail for felony theft. He pleaded guilty July 11.

According to the criminal complaint, Wilson pawned five Playstation 3 games at a Fergus Falls pawn shop on the morning of June 3. Another man allegedly stole the games, along with a flatscreen television, Playstation console and controller, power tools, and a chain saw from a detached garage of a rural Underwood residence on Anna Lake Road overnight June 3.

The alleged burglar drove Wilson to the pawn shop and asked him to pawn the games. Wilson knew the items were stolen, the report says. Wilson reportedly led the man to the residence when he asked Wilson where “he could score.”

A search of Wilson’s criminal history indicates he was sentenced to 30 days in jail July 11 for felony theft; and sentenced to 30 days in jail, with 14 days to be stayed for one year, Aug. 14 for misdemeanor tampering with a motor vehicle.
