Sentenced to five years

21 Oct, 2014

Judge Masipa says in the ruling:

It would be a sad day for this country if an impression was created that there is one law for the poor and disadvantaged and another for the rich and famous.

Righteous anger should not cloud judgment.

The defense says that the law requires him to serve about 10 months in prison, after which he can be placed under house arrest.
