Well he's only 22 and a young lad. You can't expect him to take responsibility for anything!! (Even if it would be the first time in his life!!!!)

Always someone else's fault these days, isn't it? At 22 he's an adult, and therefore ought to know the difference between right and wrong. In his defence, it seems he still lives with Mummy.

BTW, this vehicle in the title; a bit manic-depressive was it?

Driving without a licence, without insurance, taking without owners consent, possibly criminal damage (don't know if it is as the car's owner wasn't bothered).

And he was aided, abetted and encouraged by serving army personell, so perhaps his mum does have a point.

No like the shop staff encouraging him.

Of course the army must take resposibility. They didn't do enough to prvent this happening. Should have removed the tracks, and taken out power pack. Also, there is a good case for this misguided and misunderstood youth suing the MoD. If they had not purchased the vehicle in the first place, and enabled it to be in that area, then this whole ghastly business would never have happened, nor would he be scarred for life by this unpleasant incident!

Indeed, this is true. The guy didn't break into the camp, break into a hanger and then hotwire the vehicle. He had been staying with a mate for weeks and was encouraged by serving soldiers to commit this crime and then return the vehicle. So yes, I know your comment was meant to be tongue-in-cheek but in fact a huge chunk of responsibility does indeed lie with the army.

Would only have got a custodial sentence had he actually have been a serving soldier as that would have fallen under the 'betrayal of trust' codicils.
As it is, it takes a very serious offence to have a court impose a custodial sentence.Either murder, manslaughter, Sec 1 Crim damage act or being a frail, elderly person failing to pay councl tax.
