AUGUSTA — A 23-year-old city man with a history of stealing was sentenced this week to 32 months in prison on charges that include a probation revocation and two other offenses.

Christopher Ellis Williams pleaded guilty in Kennebec County Superior Court to a charge of receiving stolen property — a Blu-ray player — that occurred June 14 and to a charge of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer involving aluminum that occurred June 12, 2013, both in Augusta.

He was ordered to pay restitution of $861.50.

Williams was previously convicted of a series of metal thefts that occurred in May 2011 in Vassalboro. At that time, he was sentenced to four years in jail with all but nine months suspended and three years probation. Restitution for those thefts was $6,200 and was to be paid by Williams and several other codefendants.

He received a full probation revocation in the new sentence.
