Ex-President Carter's grandson pleaded guilty to theft

A teenage grandson of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was sentenced to 30 days of house arrest and 36 months probation as part of a plea agreement involving the theft of a videogame console.

Jeremy Carter, 18, of Peachtree City, Georgia, was arrested in December after being caught inside the home of a former friend. Police said they found less than an ounce of marijuana in his shoe and smelled alcohol on his breath.

The victim did not want Carter to go to jail, which District Attorney Scott Ballard said "considerably" affected the outcome of the case.

Carter's burglary charge was reduced and he pleaded guilty to theft by taking, a misdemeanor.

"If you are convicted of burglary here, you go to prison for three years," Ballard said.

Carter is the son of Annette and Jeff Carter, Jimmy Carter's youngest son.

Ballard said Carter will also perform 100 hours of community service and undergo drug counseling, CNN reported.
