Man avoids life sentence for robbery, murder

Mail & Guardian Online: "A Pretoria High Court judge ruled on Monday that a murderer and robber did not deserve life imprisonment because of his disadvantaged background and poor schooling.

Acting Judge Legodi Phatudi sentenced 35-year-old Jeffrey Mogatla of Mamelodi East to 40 years imprisonment, of which he effectively has to serve about 19 years -- for the December 2000 murder and robbery of Mariana Bothma, at the time the director of the old Technikon Pretoria."
