Los Angeles, Aug 15 : A man, who stole a piece of wreckage from the crashed car that killed actor Paul Walker last year, has been sentenced to six months in prison.

Jameson Witty, 18, will spend six months behind bars after he and his accomplice Anthony Edward Janow, 26, pleaded no contest to misdemeanour charges, reports

They were caught on camera taking out parts of the Porsche Carrera GT Nov 30 after the tow truck removing it from the scene in Santa Clarita, California, stopped at traffic lights.

After seeing the crime, the tow truck driver reported it to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.

The statement reads: "At one point the driver of the tow truck stopped at the red light E/B Newhall Ranch Road at McBean Parkway.

"A witness saw a male exit a vehicle that was following the tow truck. The male grabbed a piece of the wrecked Porsche off the tow truck bed. The male drove away with the stolen vehicle part."

It is believed Janow will be given the same sentence when he appears in court in October.
