CATAWBA COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield has pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor possession of stolen goods and one count of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mayfield will serve no jail time, but will have to pay $88,124.41 in restitution to the victims. $60,000 of that was paid Monday, with the rest being paid Tuesday, officials told WBTV.

He will serve a 45-day suspended sentence and 18 months of unsupervised probation.

Mayfield's home in Catawba County was searched in 2011 and items alleged to be stolen were taken by law enforcement as evidence.

Mayfield was suspended indefinitely from NASCAR in May 2009 after testing positive for methamphetamine.
