A sex worker stole her client's BMW after he refused to go through with a booking he had made.
Jennifer Whyte has been placed on a structured deferred sentence for three months but warned she could still be jailed for the car theft.
However, David Donald, who was "protecting" Whyte while she had sex with men for money, was told by Sheriff Paul Brown that he was in a different position because he had committed assault and robbery.
Donald was jailed for 13 months today at Dundee Sheriff Court for assaulting and robbing the reluctant punter when he failed to pay for pre-arranged sexual services.
The court heard how Whyte stole her client's BMW after being told he had changed his mind when she turned up at his home.
Donald followed her into the client's house, reports the Daily Record, and forced the victim to transfer cash into his bank account while his son slept upstairs.
The court heard that Whyte had provided her services as a sex worker to the man at his home previously.
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, Donald stormed into the property and threatened him.
Fiscal depute Gavin Burton told the court: "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 told the victim: "You must have money – you've got a BMW," and he pointed at the car keys, the court heard.
The pair left after being satisfied the money had been transferred successfully, and the victim did not contact police because he was too embarrassed.
Later, the victim realised his car keys were missing and when he checked he realised that his car had been stolen from the front of the property.
Jennifer Whyte, 35, from Dundee, admitted to stealing a car on 23 March last year.
David Donald, 40, from Dundee, admitted extorting money from the man by demanding cash and robbing him of £50.
