A man who bought booze with a credit card he stole from a father dying on a roadside in Hervey Bay will spend six months in jail.
Police at the time called it a "disgusting and callous act" by Shannon James Davis, 28, who used the card to buy the alcohol and other items.
Davis took the card from Matthew Clark's wallet as bystanders desperately tried to save his life after a car crash in December.
Davis's female friend, Shannon Rosina Tubb, was also allegedly involved in the theft, which was discovered when Mr Clark's widow noticed his credit card wasn't in the wallet when it was returned to her.
The act shocked and disgusted the local community, with a veteran policeman describing it as the "lowest act" he had encountered in his career.
Davis pleaded guilty to four fraud charges and one count each of stealing by looting and possession of drug utensils when he faced the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
He was sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment and ordered to pay $204.50 restitution.
He was given a parole release date of June 14, with his 35 days spent in pre-sentence custody declared as time already served.
Tubb is due to face court over the theft on Februrary 16.
