DETROIT: Man Sentenced to Two Years in Prison for Stealing Car on First Date

How do you know when a “first date” has gone really bad?

A Detriot man was sentenced last month to at least two (2) years in state prison for stealing a woman’s car after skipping out on the check during a first date. Terrance McCoy, 24, was sentenced in Oakland County, Michigan to two (2) to ten (10) years in prison for one of the classier moves that I’ve seen in awhile.McCoy pleaded “no contest” on September 18th to Grand Theft Motor Vehicle. As in Florida, a “no contest” plea does not admit guilty, but simply states that you believe it is in your best interest to resolve the case without going to trial.

Police say that McCoy dined with a twenty-seven (27) year-old companion on April 24th in Ferndale, Michigan. The woman told the police that McCoy said he forgot his wallet in her car and needed her keys to retrieve it. After that, McCoy took off in her car.

Defense attorney Terri Antisdale stated that McCoy is a “very nice man who made a bad decision.” Really? Do you think so?
