Man Who Shot Good Samaritan Sentenced To Life In Prison

Man Who Shot Good Samaritan Sentenced To Life In Prison

A Washington man has been sentenced to 340 years in prison for charges that included torturing and threatening to kill a woman working as a prostitute.

On March 15, Petaling Jaya sessions court judge Mohammed Mokhzani Mokhtar let Rozita off with a mere good behaviour bond of five years, even though the prosecution had pressed for a jail sentence, considering the severity of the crime.

She used the k-word almost 50 times during a racist tirade after a smash-and-grab incident.

She said she viewed Momberg's actions as intentional as the police officer was merely doing his job when she verbally abused him.

In a video clip that went viral, Momberg could be heard complaining about the "calibre of blacks" in Johannesburg.

During sentencing‚ magistrate Pravina Raghoonandan signalled that she was sad to be sentencing Momberg to a jail term but that it was an "inevitable" outcome.

"Respect for one another is sacrosanct‚ we are all human beings‚" Raghoonandan said.

However, deputy public prosecutor Muhamad Iskandar Ahmad pressed for a deterrent sentence, stating that the case involved the public interest. Momberg was convicted in November of crimen injuria, the use of racial or other emotionally damaging insults that "unlawfully, intentionally, and seriously [impair] the dignity of another".

Momberg's attorney says she'll appeal the conviction and sentence. In 2010, he pleaded guilty in Grand Forks District Court to a Class A felony of gross sexual imposition after investigators said he admitted to giving his adult victim painkillers.
