The court heard Haroon was studying for an NVQ in car repairs.*speechless*
Judge Timothy Mort jailed Haroon for six years. He will serve half his sentence at a young offenders’ institute before being released on licence.So three years of soft justice before early release? Not much for a life needlessly snuffed out, is it?
The white Audi was hired using another man’s driving licence, which was reported stolen.
Manchester Crown Court at Minshull Street was told Haroon - who only had a provisional licence - tried to flee the scene in a taxi after the smash.
He repeatedly denied to police that he was at the wheel - even though he boasted to friends in text messages that he expected to serve only one year behind bars.
Haroon also bragged in another message: “I was unlucky with those lights.”We were all unlucky. Unlucky it wasn’t you lying dead in the wreckage, instead of the innocent motorist.
