Last of Yarnell burglars sentenced

The last of three defendants who pleaded guilty to charges relating to the burglary of a Yarnell home that was evacuated during the June 30, 2013, Yarnell Hill fire was sentenced in March.

Thomas Adams was sentenced to five years in prison and a fine of $1,372 for his conviction on charges of weapons misconduct (prohibited possessor) and theft of a firearm. In addition, he was sentenced to two years in prison and lifetime sex offender registration on a charge of sexual conduct with a minor.

The latter charge developed during the burglary investigation, at which time detectives discovered that Adams, who was 22 at the time, was involved in a sexual relationship with a teenaged girl, according to a Thursday news release from the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

Earlier this year, Dakota Slone, 27, and Robert Frost, 22, also were sentenced in relation to the burglary and theft. Slone received a four-year prison term plus five years' probation, a $9,150 fine and $2,455 in restitution for his conviction on charges of theft and trafficking in stolen property.

Frost was sentenced to four years' probation and 202 days in jail with credit for 202 days served, in addition to a fine of $2,745 and restitution of $2,455. He pleaded guilty in January to conspiracy to commit trafficking in stolen property.

At the time of his arrest, Adams already was on probation for two other crimes.
