EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Nearly a year after Evansville Police began investigating a cell phone found in a restaurant soap dispenser at Tres Reynas, the man who pled guilty to placing it there learned his sentence.

Marcos Leon was sentenced to a year in prison Wednesday.

EPD says they believed Leon acted alone and neither the other owners nor any employees were aware this was taking place.

The restaurant closed last year.
