Baby Gabriel's father, Logan McQueary, pleaded guilty Monday to petty theft for stealing someone's Wii home-video gaming system.

McQueary accepted a plea deal for misdemeanor theft, and was sentenced to a year of probation.

McQueary has been in court many times since his son Gabriel's disappearance from the Valley more than two years ago, but each time had always been as a witness to someone else's alleged crimes.

"I regret doing this," McQueary told a judge in Maricopa County Superior Court. "I've been trying to keep my nose clean for a long time now."

McQueary said his crime was in retaliation to the Wii owner stealing McQueary's mountain bike.

"This happened a while ago," McQueary told CBS 5 News. " I am getting it taken care of.  This still has nothing to do with Tammi and Jack Smith antagonizing Elizabeth (Johnson) when she left with Gabriel and pushing or helping her do whatever it is that she did. Gabriel is still missing and they had a bigger part in this than they are letting on and the state of Arizona is going to prove it."

Tammi Smith is the alleged co-conspirator of Elizabeth Johnson's in Gabriel's disappearance.

A jury will hear opening arguments in her trial on Tuesday.
