Stole car to buy Pepsi

A Hawaii man has been ordered not to drink his favourite soft drink during four years of probation on a car theft conviction.

Judge Rhonda Loo imposed the restriction last week while sentencing 21-year-old Christopher Montilliano Jr., The Maui News reported Saturday.

Montilliano lied to police when he was arrested with the car in Maui last June, Loo said in court. Montilliano told officers that his cousin had allowed him to drive the car and that he was on his way to buy soft drinks.

The judge issued the order for him to not drink Pepsi for four years after he told her it was his favourite soft drink.

"It's the Pepsi deprivation syndrome," she said.

Montilliano spent seven days in jail following his arrest. During that time, he learned the importance of complying with the law, defence attorney Josh James said in court.

"I'm not going to steal cars anymore," Montilliano told the judge. "I don't want to be in jail no more."

Loo also sentenced Montilliano to 100 hours of community service and a $100 fine.

He had pleaded no contest to charges of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and driving without a licence.
