CATAWBA COUNTY, N.C. - Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield was convicted of possessing stolen goods on Monday inside a Catawba County courthouse..
Mayfield was charged with two counts of possession of stolen goods and possession of drug paraphernalia in 2011.
Mayfield was sentenced to a 45-day suspended sentence and was placed on unsupervised probation for 18 months.
He was also ordered to pay $88,124.21 in restitution to the victims.
Firefighters in Catawba County burned Mayfield's former $2 million mansion three weeks ago.

Mayfield sent a Tweet Thursday saying, "If I would've known about a "Burn a house down tax break" I would've burned them all down, #updateyourtaxbreak."
Mayfield was evicted from the property last year after financial troubles stemming from a failed drug test in 2009 that banned him from racing.
Channel 9 reporter Dave Faherty was the only reporter allowed in the house before it was burned. It was at one time valued at $1.8 million.
