Imagine the potential treasures inside the stolen iPad of the late Steve Jobs, secret corporate documents, personal correspondence and maybe even game prototypes. Professional entertainer Kenny the Clown, who unwittingly received the stolen tablet after the Apple co-founder�s Palo Alto home was burglarized last month, says he never examined the touch-screen device�s contents. The San Jose Mercury News says Kenny the Clown, whose real name is Kenneth Kahn, had no idea the iPad came from the Jobs residence until a friend who gave it to him was charged with burglary and police had confiscated the device. Authorities say 35-year-old Kariem McFarlin stole iPods, Macs, jewelry and Jobs� wallet. He is due in court Monday and recently hired a lawyer. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File)

PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) - A man accused of breaking into Steve Jobs' house and stealing computers along with the Apple Inc. co-founder's wallet has hired a new private attorney.

Kariem McFarlin appeared Monday in Santa Clara County Superior Court for a hearing where he was represented by attorney James Kellenberger.

McFarlin, 35, of Alameda did not enter a plea.

McFarlin was charged earlier this month with burglary and selling stolen property. If convicted, he could face almost eight years in prison.

Police say McFarlin was arrested after using the stolen devices to connect to the Internet.

McFarlin remains jailed on $500,000 bail and is due back in court on Sept. 19.
