SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin – A man convicted of stealing $20 from a toddler's piggy bank has been sentenced to six years in prison.
Four-time convicted burglar Ryan Mueller was convicted Thursday of felony burglary as a repeat offender in a Sheboygan, Wisconsin court.
Prosecutors said the 31-year-old Mueller broke into a home in August 2007 and stole money from a 2-year-old girl's piggy bank while she slept, the Sheboygan Press reported. They said the girl's mother walked into the room and caught Mueller in the act.
Mueller also was sentenced to five years' probation. He is to serve his sentence consecutively to a six-year prison sentence he was handed in June for a separate burglary conviction.
