Willie Fannon was found guilty of organized retail theft over $500.
That charge was reduced to a class-A misdemeanor.
He's sentenced to one day of county jail and will also have to pay a $2000 fine.
Police say he was the boyfriend of a J.C. Penney employee who would void sales so her friends could walk out with free items.
Arrest records show the total value of all the purchases was more than $1500.
