CAMBRIDGE, Md. (AP) — An Edgewater man has been sentenced to a year in jail for cashing more than $14,000 in checks stolen from a man he was helping renovate his home.

Noah Coffman, 24, was also ordered on Wednesday to serve five years of probation and make restitution. He pleaded guilty to one count of conducting a theft scheme under $10,000.

According to court documents, the victim said Coffman, who made out the stolen checks to himself, withdrew more than $14,000 from his bank account between October and December.
