The Grayson County runaway teen accused of crimes in multiple states was sentenced on several charges Tuesday.

According to the Circuit Court Clerk's Office, Dalton Hayes was sentenced to five years on each count after pleading guilty to two counts of theft by unlawful taking of an automobile. He was also sentenced to one year on each of the following counts: custodial inference, theft by unlawful taking of a firearm, a misdemeanor charge of theft by unlawful taking, burglary 3rd degree, and criminal mischief.

The clerk's office says the sentences will be served consecutively.
