Moments after a second hand car dealer was sentenced to five months at Birmingham Crown Court his phone started to play the theme to the Great Escape.
The tune played from the dock before 48-year-old Neil Gaffney was lead from the dock, reports the Birmingham Mail.
The court had heard that Gaffney, from Kings Norton, had conned a family into buying a Nissan Terrano for £1,400 from him which he claimed drove as almost new.
In fact it turned out to be a badly corroded vehicle which was potentially dangerous to drive.
The victims, who had five children, had to then take out a loan to buy another vehicle.
