WACO, Texas (AP) -

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.
    
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.
