The West Virginia men who led police on a car chase after attempting to steal copper from a cell tower back in February have received their sentences, according to the West Virginia News and Sentinel.
Larry Edward Patton Jr. was sentenced to one to five years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit grand larceny.
His stepson, James Edward Rucker, 20, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit grand larceny and was sentenced to six months to two years at a center for youthful offenders.
The two men were found cutting wires at a cell site and subsequently led police on a high-speed chase on an interstate highway. They were indicted in May on charges of destruction of property, damage or destruction of property used for transmitting or distributing telecommunications services and conspiracy to commit grand larceny.
