Oxford United have signed goalkeeper Luke McCormick, who was jailed in 2008 for causing death by dangerous driving.

The 29-year-old served half of his seven-year-and-four-month sentence he received after admitting causing the deaths of two brothers, aged 10 and eight, and driving with excess alcohol.

McCormick made 138 league appearances for Plymouth Argyle before he was jailed.

After release he signed for non-league Truro City and played 10 league games for the club before being acquired by Oxford.
