Iowa man sentenced to 27 years for raping local teenage boy

Iowa man sentenced to 27 years for raping local teenage boy

Former real estate agent Vicki Momberg became the first person in South Africa to be sentenced to prison for a racist rant.

She was found guilty on four counts of crimen injuria on November 3 2016.

An Iowa man has been sentenced for raping a 14-year-old boy in Idaho Falls in 2015.

The sentence was handed down on Wednesday morning at the Randburg Magistrates Court by magistrate Pravina Rugoonandan.

The owner of a Decatur compounding pharmacy was sentenced in federal court today to five years in prison for conspiring to defraud a federal health insurance program out of more than $10 million, according to U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Alabama.

In a video clip that went viral, Momberg could be heard complaining about the "calibre of blacks" in Johannesburg. The affidavit says the baby wasn't breathing when Garcia-Rivera checked on her an hour later.

Momberg has previously testified that she felt intimidated by the social workers and authorities who were working on her case, and that the media had been painting an incorrect picture of who she is. The defence, however, asked the court to grant Momberg bail.

The senior probation officer who oversaw Momberg's case, Daphney Naidoo, told the court that Momberg's treatment of Sekoba led Sekoba to undergo counselling.

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