LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man who pleaded no contest to stealing from Lindsay Lohan and reality star Audrina Patridge has been sentenced to time already served in jail.

Nicholas Prugo is the final defendant to be sentenced in the "Bling Ring" burglaries case that Los Angeles authorities say targeted celebrities' homes.

District attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says Prugo spent a year in custody before being sentenced Monday. He pleaded no contest in March 2012 in exchange for a two-year prison sentence.

Judge Larry Paul Fidler gave Prugo credit for that year plus an additional year's credit because of good behavior.

Authorities say the burglaries that Prugo and five others were involved in netted more than $3 million in jewelry, clothes and art.
