A teenage grandson of former President Jimmy Carter was sentenced to 30 days of house arrest and 36 months probation as part of a plea agreement involving the theft of a videogame console.
Jeremy Carter, 18, a resident of Peachtree City, was arrested in December after being caught inside the home of a former friend.
Police said they found less than an ounce of marijuana in his shoe.
The victimdid not want Carter to go to jail, which District Attorney Scott Ballard said " considerably" affected the outcome of the case.
Carter's burglary charge was reduced and he pleaded guilty to theft by taking, a misdemeanor.'If you are convicted of burglary here, you go to prison for 3 years,' Ballard said on Friday.
Carter is the son of Annette and Jeff Carter, Jimmy Carter's youngest son.
