BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It's four months in jail for the woman who broke into several homes in the Bangor area, including that of retired major league baseball player Matt Stairs.  Andrea Bouchard pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and two counts of receiving stolen property. Prosecutors say Bouchard helped her husband Jamie break into homes in Bangor, Old Town, Kenduskeag, and Milford over the summer. One of the homes was that of Matt Stairs. He reported that some jewelry was stolen, including his national league and american league championship rings. District Attorney Chris Almy says Andrea Bouchard was the accomplice to her husband and helped him pawn the stolen items.  

"Her husband, who is on probation and was actually one of the main culprits in these burglaries...he's in jail now and I suspect he'll serve many years in jail for what he's done with respect to these homes," said Almy. 

He says Stairs did recover some jewlery, but he does not believe he recovered his pennant rings. In addition to the jail time, Andrea Bouchard has also been ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution.
