Scott Frost underwent a frightening experience in the summer, as the head coach of Nebraska had items stolen from his home back in July.

The police in Lincoln said the perpetrators entered Frost's home through an unlocked garage door. They stole shoes, football helmets and expensive artwork from his residence.

Well, it appears the 21-year-old male who broke into Frost's home could be spending the next few years in prison.

Andrew M. Williams received two to three years for his actions in the summer, in addition to another year for an unrelated drug charge.

Williams was caught with the stolen items in his car when police pulled over his vehicle back in the summer.

Even though he apologized for his decisions and wrongful acts toward Frost, the damage has already been done.

From the Lincoln Journal Star:

In the end, the judge said it was difficult to consider Williams an appropriate candidate for probation given that he didn't cooperate with a probation officer on a pre-sentence investigation and that he since has been jailed on a new offense.

And she gave him three to five years in prison. He has served roughly four months already. With credit for good-time, he would be eligible for parole in a little over a year.

As for the other two people involved in the burglary, it turns out that they were 17 years old and are still awaiting trial in adult court.
