Nearly a year after charges were filed, Dylan DiGiovanni, 20, of North Platte was sentenced Thursday to 80 days in jail for theft.

Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo handed down the sentence.

DiGiovanni pled guilty to the theft of a woman’s purse, a laptop computer from Maxwell High School, tractor wheel weights, radiators and batteries from Miller Repair in Maxwell, and windmill gear boxes from Big Country Windmills in Maxwell.

He was sentenced to four consecutive terms of 20 days each, with credit for 65 days served.

DiGiovanni was arrested Oct. 10, 2012 for stealing the purse from a woman’s car while she worked the harvest south of Maxwell, and the laptop computers from the Maxwell High School. He was later charged with stealing tractor wheel weights, batteries and radiators from Miller Repair and the windmill gear boxes too.

The wheel weights and gear boxes showed up at North Platte Metals, leading investigators to DiGiovanni.

Prosecutors said DiGiovanni took the items from November 2011 through October 2012 and the value was enough to originally charge him with felony theft.

The case worked its way through county court in December 2012 and was bound over to Lincoln County District Court.

During contested district court proceedings, a plea deal was worked out by defense attorney Patrick Hays with the Lincoln County Attorney’s Office, which dropped the charges and sent DiGiovanni back to county court.

DiGiovanni agreed to plead guilty to four amended charges of theft in county court.

DiGiovanni and Kyer Feeney were partners in the thefts, investigators said. Feeney was named the prime culprit in the Maxwell school burglary.

Feeney was remanded to drug court. He has been jailed twice for two days each, for non-compliance with drug court requirements. Feeney is still in the drug court program.
