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, ."

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.
