Gran who killed two pedestrians sentenced to four years’ imprisonment

Richard Dawson defended a disabled grandmother who was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment after causing two deaths by her dangerous driving.

Teresa Sant, aged 58, veered across the road and mounted the pavement, where two colleagues, Victoria Hodge and Marie-Helene Gieblen, were standing after alighting a bus.  Sant, in addition to a five-year driving ban, was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment, and ordered to pay £4,200 in prosecution costs.
