Blind Rumford man admits stealing $11G worth of items from neighbor

A legally blind Rumford man who pleaded guilty to stealing $11,000 worth of items from a neighbor's home has avoided jail time, upsetting his victim.

Charles Hamilton was given a two-year deferred disposition in Oxford County Superior Court on Wednesday. He has to pay $1,200 in restitution and refrain from committing a crime during that period. If he meets the conditions, the case would be dismissed. If he fails, he faces up to five years in prison.

The Sun Journal reports that Jodi McKenna, who identified herself to the judge as the single mother from whom Hamilton stole, said the restitution does not come close to replacing the items stolen, which included everything from jewelry and electronics to pitchforks and blankets.

Hamilton claimed he was given permission to take the items.
