Man gets 16 years for Paul George home burglary

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A man who police say burglarized the home of Indiana Pacers star Paul George last year was sentenced on Tuesday.

Officials say Michael Lewis was sentenced to 16 years. He will serve the first 14 years in the Department of Correction, followed by two years of Community Corrections release. He received some jail credit, officials said.

Lewis was arrested last September for breaking into George’s home that April. After the crime, police released photos from surveillance cameras outside the house in hopes of finding who was responsible.

A pricey All-Star ring, a pair of shoes, a watch and a $20 bill were taken during the burglary. None of the stolen property was ever recovered.
