STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa man has been sentenced to about a month in jail after pleading guilty to selling 195 pigs that didn't belong to him.

The 44-year-old Monty Grote pleaded guilty Friday in Buena Vista County District Court to three counts of third-degree theft. He received a 30-day jail sentence and was placed on two years of probation.

Grote also has to pay about $14,600 in restitution.

Court documents show Grote had been contracted to raise pigs from a Minnesota company. Authorities say he sold the animals, claiming he owned them, in August and October.
