September 30, 2010
PHILADELPHIA — A former janitor has been sentenced for stealing a World Series ring left in a restroom at the Phillies'' ballpark, according to WPVI-TV.
On Wednesday, a judge sentenced 54-year-old Anthony Mobley to three to 23 months in prison and four years probation, the article stated.
Mobley pleaded guilty earlier this year in the theft of the $10,000, diamond-encrusted World Series ring in September 2009, the article noted.
Authorities say a Phillies marketing executive left the ring in a stadium washroom then discovered it was missing when he went back for it about a half-hour later.
According to the article, Mobley, who spent decades in prison for a gang-related slaying in 1974, hid the ring in the ceiling of a custodial closet.
