SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - A 35-year-old man who disturbed a memorial for three children killed when a pickup struck them has been sentenced to six months in jail.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/2j1PtSn) in a story on Sunday that Travis Joseph Conner also received four years of probation and must stay away from the memorial during those four years.

Conner on Jan. 11 pleaded guilty to two theft charges and one count of menacing and disorderly conduct following two visits he made to the memorial site in October.

As part of the plea agreement, two counts of abusing a memorial to the dead were dismissed.

Police say Classen stole a stuffed animal and less than $5 from a donation jar at the site, and also threatened a woman who approached after seeing him remove items.
