A Sylacauga man was sentenced to time served and probation after pleading guilty Wednesday morning to a dozen felony property crimes.

Leonard Randall Kelly, 47, pleaded guilty to five counts of breaking into and entering a motor vehicle, three counts of burglary in the third degree and one count each of possession of burglar's tools, receiving stolen property in the first degree, receiving stolen property in the second degree and theft of property in the second degree. The pleas were accepted by Talladega County Circuit Judge Julian King.

According to Assistant District Attorney Christina Kilgore, Kelly was sentenced to 36 months, split, with 214 days in jail and 36 months probation on each count, with all counts running concurrently.

A split sentence refers to one where a judge orders a defendant to be incarcerated for the first part of his sentence, followed by a period of probation. In this case, Kilgore explained, Kelly already had 214 days of jail credit, meaning his probation would begin immediately.

Most of the incidents involving Kelly were in January 2014. The cases were investigated by the Talladega County Sheriff’s Department.
