KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a Florida couple quit their jobs, stole a 40-foot (12-meter) catamaran sailboat and sailed to Cuba for their honeymoon.

The Miami Herald reports 46-year-old Aaron Burmeister and 32-year-old Ashley McNeil pleaded guilty Nov. 13 to charges of conspiracy to transport a vessel in foreign commerce.

They spent six months in a Cuban jail after their April 1 arrest.

They were returned to the United States in September and were arrested by federal agents when they arrived at Miami International Airport.
