Man given probation for theft at Lawrence Islamic Center
Categories: 

A man convicted of stealing between $1,000 and $2,000 from the Islamic Center of Lawrence has been sentenced to two years of probation.  Thirty-two-year-old Amadou Bah was sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest in September to burglary.  As part of his plea, prosecutors dropped a felony theft charge and a misdemeanor charge. 

The Islamic Center was burglarized Aug. 13. Bah was identified through surveillance video, which showed a man using bolt cutters to remove two cash donation boxes and then taking cash from a third box. Bah’s attorney, Julia Butler, said Bah holds a permanent resident card and was aware the conviction could affect his immigration status.
