An Arkansas man who lived in a Pennsylvania family's attic for more than a week has been sentenced to jail time. Stanley Wayne Carter was sentenced Tuesday in Luzerne County Court to nine to 23 months in jail. He pleaded guilty in May to burglary, trespassing and other offenses.

The 21-year-old from Trumann, Ark., apologized again to homeowner Stacy Ferrance and her family.

In addition to living in the attic, Carter stole belongings from the Plains Township house while Ferrance and her children were out.

Carter had been staying with Ferrance's neighbors. But when they asked him to leave, he went into the attic shared by the two homes and lived there for 10 days.
