Man Accused of Stealing Obama Truck Heads to Court

  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Richmond man who stole a truck containing President Obama's audio equipment is due in court for sentencing.
     Eric Brown's hearing is set for Thursday morning in U.S. District Court. Prosecutors and Brown's attorney are asking the judge to impose a sentence of seven years.
     The 49-year-old Brown pleaded guilty in January to theft of government property. According to court papers, authorities in several localities have agreed not to prosecute Brown for similar thefts if the seven-year sentence is imposed.
     The 2005 van was stolen from a suburban Richmond hotel parking lot in October 2011, ahead of an appearance by Obama several days later. Along with audio equipment, the van contained a laptop computer, presidential seals and a podium. Some of the items were later recovered at Maryland pawn shops.
