Sentencing is scheduled Tuesday for Leon Powell, who pleaded guilty to a burglary charge for sneaking into the La Jolla home of food writer Jeanne Jones and stealing a "significant amount" of her jewelry. 

Powell allegedly entered Jones' La Jolla Scenic Drive home on Oct. 5 by unknown means along with another man and looted it, fleeing when the Jones awoke and confronted them.

It was the second time in three years that burglars have targeted the home of Jones, author of more than 30 cookbooks and writer of the syndicated newspaper column Cook It Light.
