The Forum newspaper reports that 35-year-old Jason Leines also must serve five years of supervised probation and pay restitution to be determined later.

Prosecutors allege that Leines and Jeremy Tibiatowski stole equipment worth more than $10,000, mostly from home construction sites in Fargo, West Fargo, Argusville and Kindred. Tibiatowski has pleaded not guilty.
