One of church burglary defendants sentenced to probation

by

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) -- One of the three people involved in a June 2012 Stevens Point church burglary was given two years on probation. 22-year-old Jesse Peterson of Neillsville received that sentence from judge Thomas Flugar Tuesday. The sentence also calls for a letter of apology to the church, substance abuse counseling, and restitution.

Court records say Peterson was the driver who took 25-year-old Jacob Kiernan of Sparta to Celebration Church, where he is accused of causing damage to the building and stealing several items including a guitar.

The church’s pastor found the stolen guitar, listed for sale at a La Crosse pawn shop’s website. Police then traced the pawn records to Kiernan’s friend, 26-year-old Taylor Kilbey of Sparta.

Kiernan has a January 27th initial appearance scheduled in Portage County court. Kilbey has a long list of past drug, burglary, theft, and intimidating witness charges but she has not yet been charged in relation to the Celebration Church case.
