People v. Cage

Michigan Supreme Court
410 Mich. 401 (1981)


Facts

Cage (defendant) went to a car dealer and told the salesman that he intended to buy the car if he liked it after a test drive and having it checked out by a mechanic. Cage did not actually intend to buy the car. Instead, Cage intended to take the car for his own use. The State of Michigan (plaintiff) charged Cage with theft by false pretenses. Cage initially pleaded guilty and then appealed, challenging the factual basis for the plea. The Michigan Court of Appeals affirmed, and Cage petitioned the Michigan Supreme Court for review.
