James Stacy Pleads Guilty To Stealing From Casper Re-Entry Center Office
A resident of the Casper Re-Entry Center is admitting he stole official documents to help a friend.
Twenty-six year old James Stacy has pleaded guilty to one count of burglary.
Investigators with the Natrona County Sheriff's Office say in July, a case manager noticed that something wasn't right in their office, because ceiling tile residue was discovered on a desk and chair and paperwork on the desk was disorganized.
Upon playing back the security camera footage, it was discovered that at one point, Stacy had exited the locked office with some papers, but didn't enter the office in the same way that he came out.
When interviewed, he admitted he entered the office through the ceiling area, which he was able to access elsewhere, outside of the view of security cameras.
The paperwork that he stole was for a friend who had a positive urine test.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a one and one-half to three year prison sentence.
Stacy is being held on $5,000 bond, and will be sentenced at a later date.
Several accomplices connected to this case, are also facing charges.
