CLAYTON, Mo. -- A St. Louis County man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for stealing sports memorabilia and electronics from an assistant coach for the St. Louis Rams, along with other crimes.

 

James Bright, 25, of Fenton also pleaded guilty in two other criminal cases at a hearing Tuesday.

Bright and 27-year-old Jeffrey Medcalf were accused of breaking into the Kirkwood home of Rams tight ends coach Rob Boras on New Year’s Eve.

The theft included two Southwestern Conference championship rings, a gold Big 12 championship ring and a gold NFC Championship ring, along with a TV, a game system and other electronics.

Bright also admitted to burglary and stealing at two other properties.

Medcalf is expected in court next month to enter a plea.
