NEW YORK (AP) - A man convicted of stealing Kirsten Dunst’s designer purse from a New York City hotel suite has been sentenced to four years in prison.

James Jimenez was convicted of burglary in June. He was sentenced Tuesday.

A jury had found him guilty of stealing Dunst’s $2,000 designer purse. Actor Simon Pegg’s cell phone and other items also were taken from the chic hotel in 2007.
