Prostitute, 35, steals customer's BMW after he changes mind about planned hook-up at his home
A PROSTITUTE stole her client's BMW after being told he had changed his mind when she turned up at his home.
Jennifer Whyte, 35, had provided her services as a sex worker to the man at his home previously, Dundee Sheriff Court heard.
But the arrangement went sour when she arrived to find the man had been sleeping and had woken up and thought better of going through with the agreed sex acts.
When the man told Whyte he had no money to pay her, other than £15 to cover her taxi costs, her partner David Donald, 40, stormed into the property and threatened him.
Fiscal depute Gavin Burton told the court: "At the time she was offering sexual services as an escort on a website.
"She was in a relationship with her co-accused.
"On March 22 2020 the complainer returned home and parked his car. The keys were on the worktop.
"He had been drinking two bottles of wine. At 1.30 am he decided to contact an escort he had previously used.
"He found the profile of Whyte which included the phrase 'sexy, friendly and best girlfriend experience ever.'"
The man contacted Whyte and she agreed to provide sexual services and a price was agreed.
However, the man fell asleep soon after.
"He was woken by the sound of the buzzer a short time later and opened the door to let Whyte in," Burton said.
"He informed her he did not have any money, had changed his mind and did not want anything. She told him she had paid for a taxi.
"He gave her £15 for a taxi and she started to walk towards the door as she seemed OK with that. She walked into the common close and he did not lock the door.
"He was in the kitchen a few seconds when Donald appeared wearing a hoodie and with a Burberry scarf covering his mouth and nose.
"He had his right hand behind his back. He asked the complainer for money. The complainer told him he had no money in his wallet."
Donald then told the man: "You must have money – you've got a BMW" and he pointed at the car keys.
The victim was then told to transfer money into a bank account.
When the victim was transferring £50 he said he needed a name to complete the transaction and the accused told him he was David Donald.
Donald and Whyte left after being satisfied the money had been transferred successfully, and the victim did not contact police because he was too embarrassed.
Later on the victim realised his car keys were gone and when he checked he realised that his car had been stolen from the front of the property.
He phoned Whyte's mobile number but got no response and the theft was reported to the police.
The car was traced a short distance away and Whyte's DNA was recovered from the steering wheel and handbrake.
Whyte from Dundee, admitted stealing a car from Kenmore Gardens on March 23 last year.
Meanwhile Donald, also from Dundee, admitted extorting money from the man by demanding cash and robbing him of £50.
Sheriff Paul Brown deferred sentence on both accused for the preparation of background reports.
