Felony grand theft is trumped up charges. Criminal mischief with vandalism is the charges in this case. Do you serious think if they wanted to steal the damn thing they would drug it behind the vech while one them rode it like bull? Yes they need to make restitution to the man who owned it, but as far as felony charges that's bunk. I would like to know who made that decision, about felony charges, was it the sheriff's office or state prosecutor? Who is his/her name. Triumphing up charges higher than the crime committed is bad. It leads to unjust punishment. Yes these guys have been in trouble before, but don't beef up their charges for doing something stupid probably while drunk. Reminds me of Fla charging a poacher with felony of $12,000 deer from a hunting preserve then 2 weeks later telling a poor man and woman that Fla law prohibits the owning of any native deer species. What attorney that takes the bar in good faith allows this kind of justice?
