One of the two suspects accused of stealing the roof of the burned-out Porsche actor Paul Walker was a passenger in at the time of his death last year (Nov13) has been jailed for six months.

Teenager Jameson Brooks Witty and his co-defendant, Anthony Edward Janow, 26, pleaded no contest to misdemeanour charges of destroying evidence, grand theft and resisting or delaying a police officer last week (06Aug14), after allegedly walking off with the roof panel from a tow truck carrying the destroyed Porsche Carrera Gt from the crash site.

The sportscar burst into flames after it crashed into a post in Santa Clarita, California, killing the driver and Walker.

On Thursday (14Aug14), Whitty was sentenced to serve the maximum punishment for the crimes.

Janow is set to learn his fate on 23 October (14).
