Last November, actor Paul Walker was killed in a single-car accident in Santa Clarita, California at the age of 40, along with his long-time friend Roger Rodas. Rodas was driving a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT at a speed of about 90mph, which was the cause for the crash, but before the investigation could be carried out to determine the official cause of death, a panel from the roof of the crashed vehicle was stolen by two bystanders, who were apparently warned by police officers on the scene that they were not permitted to remove anything from the car or accident site. That being said, the two men, Anthony Edward Janow and Jameson Brooks, proceeded to steal the roof panel while the tow truck hauling the vehicle was stopped at a light. The two suspects pleaded no contest on Tuesday evening to felony and misdemeanor counts of grand theft, destruction of evidence, and obstructing, resisting, and delaying a police officer. LA County Superior Court Judge Lloyd Nash has stated that both men are expected to receive 180 days in the county jail, with Witty scheduled to be sentenced in August and Janow to be sentenced in October. Moral of the story: you can’t fix stupid.
