A United Airlines employee and his wife have pleaded no contest to stealing luggage in the aftermath of the Asiana Airlines crash.

The 44-year-old Sean Sharif Crudup of Richmond and his wife, 32-year-old Raychas Elizabeth Thomas, entered pleas Monday in San Mateo County Superior Court on charges of grand theft and possession of stolen property.

They each face up to a year in prison.

The couple is accused of stealing the luggage of passengers who were supposed to fly into the San Francisco International Airport but were diverted because of the Asiana Airlines crash on July 6, 2013.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the luggage contained valuable items including a large quantity of clothing that Thomas returned to the store for about $5,000, according to San Mateo County's chief deputy district attorney, Karen Guidotti.
