A youth who wrecked his stepfather’s vehicle after taking it without permission has been sentenced to a month and a half in jail.The defendant, Brand Dale Boling, 20, entered guilty pleas last week before General Sessions Judge Larry Ross to charges of joyriding, vandalism and driving on a suspended license. He was ordered to serve 45 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence and make $1,500 restitution for damage to the vehicle in which he was joyriding. His sentence will be served in addition to any jail time he may get from an unrelated case he faces in circuit court.His sentence comes after the victim reported his vehicle had been stolen from his residence.
