Joe Biden’s former Department of Energy employee Sam Brinton this week pleaded no contest to misdemeanor theft for stealing luggage from a Las Vegas airport.
Sam Brinton was originally charged with a felony but his charge was reduced to a misdemeanor and he will avoid jail time under a plea deal with prosecutors.
Brinton received a ‘suspended jail sentence’ of 180 days and ordered to pay $3,670 to the victim.
