---- — Judge Joseph Jennings sentenced an Everett man to a year of jail on a larceny charge after he pleaded guilty Monday.

Joshua Everhart, 26, of 90 Shute St., was arrested in May 2012 after employees of Stop and Shop had contacted police. An employee told police Everhart and another man walked into the store and stole baby formula, which was valued anywhere from $200 to $300, according to the police report.

Police managed to get videotapes of the theft, according to the police report.

Everhart plead guilty to the larceny charge, and was credited with 52 days of his jail term.

He was also charged with a license violation, which was dismissed.

Michael Bernardini, 25 of Curtis Street, pleaded guilty Friday on charges of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and reckless endangerment of a motor vehicle.

The charges stem from an arrest in July 2012. Bernardini was ordered to pay $600 in court fees and his case was continued without a finding until November of next year.
