Man jailed for car theft on date
A man from the US city of Detroit has been sentenced to two years in jail after stealing the car of a woman he was on a first date with. After a restaurant meal, Terrance McCoy said he left his wallet in the woman's car, asked for the keys and drove off, AP reported, quoting the woman. McCoy pleaded no contest to the charge of unlawfully driving away a vehicle. Defence lawyer Terri Antisdale said his client was "a very nice man who made a bad decision". A no contest plea is not an admission of guilt under US law but counts as a conviction at sentencing.
