A 23-year-old Lansing man who worked as a junior high school janitor has been sentenced to three months in jail after police say he stole a girl’s cell phone and “sexted” her friends.

John William Boggs pleaded guilty last month to larceny in a building and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Clinton County Circuit Court Judge Randy Tahvonen sentenced Boggs on Monday.
