Man gets jail for taking part from Paul Walker car

December 10, 2014

SAN FERNANDO, California (AP) — A man who stole part of the Porsche that “Fast and the Furious” actor Paul Walker died in has been sentenced to six months in jail.

City News Service says 26-year-old Anthony Janow was sentenced Tuesday in Southern California.

Walker and driver Roger Rodas died in November 2013 when their speeding Porsche Carrera GT hit a tree and a light pole in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita.

Prosecutors say Janow and a friend stole a roof panel when a tow truck carrying the wreckage stopped at a red light.

Janow and 19-year-old Jameson Witty each pleaded no contest to grand theft, destroying evidence and obstructing a peace officer.

Witty was sentenced earlier this year to six months in jail.
