From Iceland — Cabbage Criminal Sentenced

Cabbage Criminal Sentenced

Published June 11, 2013

A man has been sentenced to 30 days on probation and to pay 80.000 ISK compensation, for trying to steal 400 kg of cabbage.

The man had already lost his driving license when he drove his car into a cabbage field in Hrunamannahreppur in South Iceland, in the middle of the night in August 2012. His car got stuck in the mud and when trying to free it, the man caused a lot of damage to the crops, reports.

He had also gathered a pile of about 400 kilos of cabbage behind the vehicle, which he meant to take with him from the field.

In court, the man represented himself and pleaded guilty instantly, as well as agreeing to compensate the owners of the field, for the damaged he’d done.

The district court of South Iceland, in Selfoss, sentenced the man on Tuesday for vandalism, theft attempt and a driving offence.
