JUNEAU — A 30-year-old Beaver Dam man was given three years in prison Wednesday for taking items from a neighbor.
Cody Reifsnider was found guilty Aug. 18 of felony burglary and appeared Wednesday before Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Steven Bauer, who sentenced him to three years of initial incarceration and a four-year extended sentence. As conditions of his extended sentence, he must seek and maintain full-time employment and maintain absolute sobriety. He will have to undergo random drug tests and pay restitution and court costs.
According to the criminal complaint, Beaver Dam Police responded to a residence in the 100 block of Bogert Street after a woman reported that someone stole jewelry from her bedroom. She also noticed a juice box in the home was moved and wanted it to be fingerprinted.
The woman told police that Reifsnider had access to a key and believed he could have entered her home.
The complaint stated police learned Reifsnider sold pieces of jewelry to Beaver Dam Gold and Coin that matched the items the woman had stolen from her.
On March 10, results from the DNA analysis of the juice box was received from the State Crime Lab. The DNA on the juice box linked it to Reifsnider.
