Killer taxi driver sentenced to 20 years
28 February 2012
Killer taxi driver Jacob Humphreys has been sentenced to 20 years in jail.
When he was sentenced by Western Cape High Court judge Robert Henney, Henney said that a non-custodial sentence would have sent the wrong message.
Humphreys was convicted last year for ten counts of murder and four counts of attempted murder.
His taxi was hit by a train after he ignored lowered booms at a level crossing, killing ten children nearly two years ago.
