    A man has been sentenced to four years in prison for taking Kirsten Dunst's designer purse from a New York City hotel suite.

    James Jimenez got the four-year term Tuesday. He was convicted of burglary in June.

    A jury found him guilty of stealing Dunst's $2,000 designer purse. Actor Simon Pegg's cell phone and other items also were taken from the chic hotel in 2007.

    They were staying in a suite there while filming "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People.''

    Prosecutors had argued that Jimenez deserved seven years behind bars. He denied any wrongdoing.
