Another footballer driver

A Championship footballer who killed a father of five in a crash on Christmas Day started a 32-month jail sentence today.

Jordan Robertson, 21, was handed the sentence at Leicester crown court after pleading guilty to causing death by dangerous driving. He was also banned from driving for five years. [Why not for life?]

He later told police he had been trying to change songs on his iPod in his black Mercedes CLC 180 sport car when the accident happened.

The Mercedes CLC 180 is a death machine with a top speed of 137 mph. Will the police be raiding Mercedes to seize this dangerous weapon and arrest all those involved for criminal conspiracy? Don't hold your breath...
