Charles Hager was sentenced to home confinement in Marion county Tuesday after he tried to cash in on stolen property, and forced police to chase him into the West Fork River.
Hager has been on home confinement since May, which is when he tried to turn in what he stole to Three Rivers Iron and Metals. This is what lead investigators to chase him, and another man through the woods all the way into the West Fork River.
As part of the judge's ruling, Hager can only leave his home for medical appointments and work. If he violates his home confinement he could spend up to 20 years behind bars.
