Driver Lee Ludbrook, 43, of Moxley, got five years, while Paul Slater-Mason, 38, of no fixed abode, was sentenced to 12 months.
Sounds like cruel and unusual punishment. I mean, the homeless guy needs a place to stay more than the other guy.
Smuggling is an old profession. At least these smuglees got decent treatment; it's not uncommon for Mexicans to die from heat and dehydration in the
back of trucks, coming to the US. But I guess that's just one more example of how the Brits are ahead of us; first no death penalty, then this.
And the price seems a bit steep. Don't people swim across that channel these days?
