Man Sentenced In Theft Of Jillian Michaels' Bentley GT

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A parolee convicted of stealing a Bentley belonging to "The Biggest Loser" trainer Jillian Michaels has been sentenced to 17 years in prison.

Los Angeles County prosecutors announced 31-year-old Gerjuan Harmon's sentencing on Friday.

In 2012, Harmon took Michael's belongings, including a purse containing the keys to her Bentley GT, while she and her family watched television inside her Malibu home.

Burbank police tried to pull Harmon over the next day, but he fled. He eventually crashed the car and tried to run away but was caught in a shed.

At the time, he was already on parole for a previous burglary.

In June, a jury convicted Harmon of burglary with a person present and grand theft. Last year a jury failed to reach a verdict on those two counts.
