(MYFOX8) — MADISON COUNTY, Ga. — A Madison County, Ga., teen spent the better part of $30,000, which was mistakenly put into his checking account by a bank teller. Now, he’ll serve the next 10 years on probation and has been ordered by a judge to pay the money back.
“The daddy apologized about a dozen times that he was sorry it happened and the boy said he was sorry. That’s about all he said,” victim Steven Fields said.
Both the victim and the man convicted have the same name and both live in Hull, a small town in Madison County. They never knew one another even though for a time they lived on the same street.
