Judge Alexander P. Bicket sentenced  John Schulman, and Greg Priore yesterday. The sentence: home detention and probation. The judge said the non-jail terms were due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Home confinement with electronic monitoring allows convicted felons trips outside their homes for worship and medical care. Neither man, Judge Bicket said, may profit from films, books, radio shows or other storytelling platforms “arising out of the facts and circumstances of this case.” If either man is offered money, it must go to a fund to make victims whole. This includes Travelers Insurance, which paid Carnegie Library $6.57 million for its loss.

The sentence closes the two year case involving the theft, cannibalizing and selling of 8.1 million dollars worth of books, maps, and manuscripts from the Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh, PA.
