Andrea Bouchard of Old Town pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and two counts of receiving stolen property.

BANGOR, Maine (AP) _ A woman who pleaded guilty to breaking into several homes, including that of retired Major League baseball player Matt Stairs, has been sentenced to four months in jail and ordered to pay $5,000 restitution.

Andrea Bouchard of Old Town pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and two counts of receiving stolen property. Prosecutors said Bouchard helped her husband Jamie break into homes in Bangor, Old Town, Kenduskeag, and Milford over the summer.

WCSH-TV says Stairs reported some jewelry was stolen, including his National and American League championship rings. District Attorney Chris Almy said Andrea Bouchard was the accomplice to her husband, who is now in jail, and helped him pawn the items.

Almy said Stairs did recover some jewelry, but he doesn't believe he recovered his pennant rings.
