Steven Swanson was found guilty of theft from a person or human corpse.
He's sentenced to five years deferred adjudication.
He'll also have to pay a $750 dollar fine plus $500 dollars in restitution to the victim's family.
Employees at a funeral home off 300 East Cash in Iowa Park say a man came there asking to go to the bathroom and then left.
They say a widow of a deceased person later went to the funeral home and noticed her late husband's ring and watch were missing.
Employees say they looked at the ledger in the deceased man's room and saw the name Steve Swanson.
Police later interviewed Swanson who admitted to the theft.
