The Debrecen Tribunal imposed a 2-year prison sentence on the man who electrified his fences in order to prevent children from the neighbourhood from climbing through them. He was annoyed by the neighbours’ relatives’ children whose custom was to enter his courtyard through the fence, climb up to the top of the pigsty and hurl the tiles onto the ground. Though he notified the neighbours about the electrified fences, two 7-year old children tried to climb them in 2009 and their hands were burnt. The court took the numerous extenuating circumstances into account before imposing the sentence.
