Shaine Wallace, 35, was sentenced Monday to 102 days in jail, with credit for time served, and 18 months of probation. He pleaded no contest to a larceny in a building, larceny of a firearm and filing a false report of a felony.

Wallace was found Aug. 8 in Muskegon County’s Laketon Township by his parents after they returned early from vacation. He initially told investigators he was attacked by thieves, who ransacked the house and cuffed his fingers.

Rescuers had to remove the cuffs, which are sold at novelty stores.
