LAYTON — Former Utah Jazz player Robert Whaley will serve a jail sentence after pleading guilty to a felony burglary charge.

Second District Judge David Hamilton sentenced Whaley to 60 days with work release Monday for burglarizing a Layton Marriott Hotel last year, the Standard Examiner reports.

The 33-year-old man was ordered to turn himself in to the Davis County Jail Saturday.

Hamilton also ordered him to serve three years of probation and pay more than $1,000 in fines and restitution.

Security tapes showed Whaley entering the hotel through an employee entrance, going into a room with a locked gate, breaking into a drawer and taking cash. He used to work at the hotel.

Whaley played 23 games with the Jazz in 2005.

A message left with Whaley's attorney, Ryan Bushell, was not immediately returned.
