Last summer, the home of MLB legend Hank Aaron was broken into and items were stolen while Aaron was away in New York for the 2013 All-Star Game.

All told, police eventually caught three men responsible for the burglary involving Aaron's Georgia home, one of which received his punishment from a judge on Monday.

Isiah Slaton, 24, was sentenced to eight years in prison and 42 years of probation. Meanwhile, the other two men are still waiting to learn their fate.

The three were responsible for swiping jewelry, including rings destined for the Hall of Fame, and tried to steal two BMWs too. Although they drove the vehicles away from the home, they dumped them for police to find, which police eventually did.
