    Nine hours after his release from prison, Jonique Ramon Webster was back in custody again for trying to burglarize a Central Texas prosecutor's home.

    Webster was given 40 years in prison Thursday for the June incident.

    The Waco Tribune-Herald reported that Webster had just gotten off the bus in Waco after his release from state prison on a 10-year sentence for home burglary. According to court records, Webster was wandering around the city and picked the home of Gabrielle Massey, a McLennan County prosecutor.

    A neighbor who felt uncomfortable called police, who caught Webster with $20 in cash, car and house keys, a TiVo remote and a bicycle.

    He later pleaded guilty.

    Webster has several prior convictions on his record and won't be eligible for parole for 10 years.
