A Georgia teen will spend the next 10 years on probation and must pay back nearly $30,000 that was mistakenly put into his bank account. 

18-year old Steven Fields was charged with felony by taking after spending the money to buy a used BMW, food and clothing, according to CNN. 

The 70-year-old victim, also named Steven Fields deposited nearly $30,000 into his account after selling a plot of land; however, the bank teller accidentally added it to the wrong checking account - the one belonging to 18-year-old Steven Fields.

Both the elder and younger Steven Fields live in Hull, Georgia - a small town located in Madison County. Neither knew one another, but actually lived on the same street at one point in time, according to WGHP Fox 8.

“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,” said victim Steven Fields.
