Seven years in prison. That's where 18-year-old Jacob Shepard will be for stealing Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder's car.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Shepard was also sentenced to a concurrent four years for crashing the car into a Shooter's Gun Shop last April. Charges of torching the car were dropped, so Shepard has that going for him.

Kinder did what every cop will tell you not to do: He left his keys in his Ford Flex crossover.

Shepard's excuse was that he'd taken Ecstasy and was drinking when he stole the car and rammed it into a wall.

Still facing trial is 21-year-old Adam Cromer, who is charged with stealing, tampering and attempted burglary. Cromer says he's not guilty.

Lots of lesson learning here. Kinder learned why you never leave your keys in your car. And Shepard learned why you never take Ecstasy and ram a car into a gun shop.
