Man sentenced for stealing from former DA
January 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A 24-year-old Redwood City man accused of stealing the former district attorney’s credit card by falsely claiming he needed access to his backyard to find a missing baseball was sentenced Wednesday to 11 years and eight months in state prison.

Andrew Michael Jonke reportedly knocked on former district attorney Keith Sorenson’s door on Feb. 20, 2012, claiming his baseball went into the man’s backyard and asked if he could retrieve it. Sorenson let Jonke in and the next day discovered his wallet missing from inside the home. Sorenson’s credit card was used five times beginning hours after the encounter with Jonke and surveillance video at one of the locations actually captured Jonke using the card, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Jonke pleaded no contest in September to felony counts of identity theft, residential burglary and possession stolen property. He also admitted having a criminal strike and a felony conviction within the past five years in return for just shy of the dozen years in prison.

Jonke has been in custody in lieu of $200,000 bail.

What do you think of Cuba and the United States re-establishing diplomatic ties?

It's about time
We'll see how it goes
Makes sense
Don't like it
I guess the Cold War is over
Does this mean Cuban cigars will be cheaper now?
