Bashmakovo, 23 December 2015. PenzaNews. A citizen of the Bashmakovo area in the Penza region has received a delayed sentence of 2 years after he twice got caught driving a tractor hijacked from an agricultural cooperative company.

“The man, while being inebriated, broke into the tractor, started it using the keys left in the ignition, drove it out of the cooperative, lost control and overturned the vehicle on the right side,” an official representative of the Bashmakovo area court informed PenzaNews agency.

Later on, the man, being under the weather, again broke into the tractor, started it and rode a short distance within the cooperative company area, but was stopped by its employees.

“The criminal case was reviewed under a special procedure as the litigant agreed with the charges,” the representative said.

According to him, the sentence has not entered into force and can be appealed in accordance with the law.
