The man who stole Sir Elton John’s glasses from the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum last month was given a two-year, suspended sentence with probation.

In court Tuesday, Matthew Colvin, 26, of Cordova, pleaded guilty to stealing the glasses.

The glasses were recovered by the Memphis Police Department within a week of their disappearance from the museum.

Colvin was charged with the crime on May 4 and could have received up to four years in prison.

The glasses are on loan to the museum from Hard Rock Cafe International. The glasses are heart-shaped blue prescription glasses from Anglo-American-Apparel glasses of England. Also stolen (and also recovered) was a red glasses sleeve from L.A. Eyeworks.
