Teen who stole Guy Fieri's Lamborghini gets life in prison

Teen Who Stole Guy Fieri's Lamborghini Gets Life In Prison

The teen who stole Food Network star Guy Fieri's Lamborghini three years ago has been sentenced to life behind bars.

According to KXTV, police say 19-year-old Max Wade stole the $200,000 car after Fieri dropped it off at a San Francisco repair shop in 2011.

But grand theft auto wasn't the crime that got the teen such a serious sentence, according to KMSP.

'Nineteen-year old Max Wade of California is also convicted of attempted murder after he fired a gun into a car carrying the girl he liked and her new boyfriend.'

No one was shot, but according to KTVU, the judge sentenced Wade to life in prison for the drive-by shooting plus 21 years and four months for a gun enhancement charge. He got another 16 months for stealing Fieri's car.

KGO-TV reports Wade also had plans to rob a renowned jewelry store in San Francisco, but the judge didn't include any punishment for that in his sentence.

Witnesses in the courtroom during the sentencing told KOFY Wade showed little emotion.

'I didn't feel comfortable walking down the same sidewalk as him. And I think in spite of his age, in spite of that, I wouldn't want my mom or my girlfriend to be walking down the same street as Max Wade.'

Wade's attorney says it could be more than 15 years before the teen is eligible for parole. The decision is expected to be appealed.

I know. He must not have been offered a plea deal and they act like he caught a break because he wasn't sentenced for going through with a robbery he had plans for...

Okay, now this is insane. A kid in Texas kills 4 people and gets a slap on the wrist by pleading "afluenza" (may the judge burn in hell), and this guy gets life for a driveby, with no casualties?
And, by the way, writers of headlines. Stop bending the truth. He did not get life for stealing a celeb's car. Learn your trade or go flip hamburgers.

Life in prison for "attempted" murder? Really? This judge should take a look at any inner city --- those thugs (real thugs) should all get arrested and get multiple life sentences then.

It is amazing how QUICKLY individuals forget about the MILLIONS of lives that were taken at the hands of slave owners, and individuals during the Jim Crow laws, i.e. lynching. It is amazing how individuals assume the hypocritical and self-righteous mentality. Therefore, I would take a look at that inventory, as well as the MANY crimes that are committed within NON minority areas, that mysterious are NOT reported as frequently.

His problem is that he wasn't in Texas and he wasn't drunk. Down there you get at the most 180 days for killing someone while drunk. Heck I bet he would have gotten 10 days at a day care center for what he did if he was in Texas. Our world is really messed up.

Try Florida, is just like Texas, and Stand Your Ground solves the problem.

What does Stand Your Ground have to do with this? And can you name one Stand Your Ground case in Fl. ? The only one I can think of is the woman that got 20 years for firing a shot into the roof of her garage so that she could escape from her estranged husband that was hitting her and saying he was going to kill her. And in Fl. Stand Your Ground is used by black people in about 80% of the S.Y.G. cases. Not saying a disparaging word against people of color, just pointing out that minorities are the biggest beneficiaries of S.Y.G. in Fl.

i have no problem with the sentence but our laws are nuts they convict him of a driveby shooting and then tack on 21 yrs for doing it with a gun? so he got life for driving by a house? part of our problem is stupid laws its time to make laws that make sense ,ive seen where one person is murdered and the guy is charged with 3 counts of murder 3 counts of attempted murder and a 1/2 dozen other counst of manslauder etc no wonder so many walk they have confused the crap out of juries

Need more of these judges...just the other day didn't a judge let off a kid who killed people while driving drunk? Let him off because his parents spoiled him too much...I wish there was one punishment for both blue collar and white collar crimes. Way too much leverage depending on who you or your parents are.
