Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) A man convicted of stealing women's undergarments after breaking into their homes has asked for -- and received -- a prison sentence.

Officials had recommended probation for 40-year-old Steven Quatkemeyer, but the defendant asked a district judge to put him behind bars.

The judge obliged, and ordered Quatkemeyer to serve four years behind bars.

Quatkemeyer also apologized to his victims and their families.

He'd pleaded guilty to a felony stalking count, plus two counts of felony burglary. Prosecutors dropped a number of misdemeanors and six other felony counts in exchange for the guilty pleas.

Police captured Quatkemeyer after a victim whose home had been broken into repeatedly installed a video security system.
