Judge tells man to give up Pepsi during probation: 'The soda made you do it?'

A man convicted of stealing a car in Hawaii has been given a bit of unorthodox advice from the judge presiding over his case: Lay off the Pepsi.

Christopher Montilliano, 21, was sentenced to four years' probation, 100 hours of community service and $100 fine following his arrest in June 2018 for allegedly stealing a 1990 Honda Accord.

At the time, he told police he had borrowed the car from a cousin and was on the way to a supermarket to pick up some soda, The Maui News reported.

"You didn't want to admit that you actually stole the vehicle," Judge Rhonda Loo remarked during Montilliano's sentencing on Friday. "Is it because the soda made you do it?" she asked.

"This is the first time I've heard of a Coca-Cola addiction" she later added. "I'm sure the soda didn't make you steal the vehicle."
