A man convicted of two criminal charges related to stealing an engagement ring, laptop computer, credit cards, luggage and money from a woman he said he planned to marry was sentenced Monday to 1 1/2 years in prison, according to Pierce County Court records.

Raymond E. Jackson, 41, who has a criminal history in several states, pleaded guilty in July to felony theft and a misdemeanor count of fraudulent use of a credit card.

Judge Robert Wing also sentenced Jackson to two years of extended supervision once Jackson is released from prison. Jackson was given credit for 270 days served in jail.

According to court records:

A 39-year-old woman told police she met Jackson in Prescott in September 2008. He eventually moved in with her, and they planned to marry Dec. 31 in Las Vegas. He said he had a job interview in South Dakota and flew out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The woman then realized her laptop, cell phone, suitcase and $4,200 diamond ring were missing, and Jackson had used her credit card to buy an $800 one-way ticket to Hawaii. Reports indicate Jackson married a woman from Russia while in Hawaii and had used the Pierce County woman's credit card for a hotel, flowers, flights and other expenses.

Estimates indicate Jackson stole a total of $7,600.
