McFarlin Pleads No Contest to Steve Jobs Heist

In California, Kariem McFarlin, the man who allegedly broke inside the house of Apple Inc. co-founder, Steve Jobs, pleaded no contest to the burglary.

McFarlin accepted a plea deal and got a conviction Wednesday from the Santa Clara County Superior Court on 8 counts of Felony in the residential San Francisco Bay area.

He was first charged in August after he got caught selling stolen property from Steve Jobs' Palo Alto home which happened in July. He admitted that he didn't know it was the house of the tech icon until he saw letters addressed to him.

McFarlin took Steve Jobs' wallet and driver's license, including his iPhone, iPad, iPod, Macbook, champagne and several pieces of jewelry worth $60,000.

He now faces up to seven years and eight months sentence which will be finalized on January 17 before the court.
