  • Print

ATLANTA - A second man has pleaded guilty to burglarizing baseball legend Hank Aaron's Atlanta home, stealing jewelry the ex-Brave planned to donate to the Hall of Fame and two cars.

Fulton County District Attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones says 23-year-old Amir Coleman pleaded guilty Tuesday to burglary and two counts of theft.

Jones says Coleman has been ordered to spend 10 years of his 35-year sentence in prison and the rest on probation.

Authorities say Coleman and two accomplices burglarized Aaron's home while he and his wife were out of town in July of 2013. On Monday, co-defendant Isiah Slaton also pleaded guilty and was sentenced to eight years in prison and 42 on probation.

A third man, Edward Buford, was granted immunity for testifying against Slaton and Coleman.
