Diamond Fields Advertiser - - OPINION -

TWO NON-White men, who of­fered a new truck tube, val­ued at about R30, to a de­tec­tive for R2, were sen­tenced in the Re­gional Court in Kim­ber­ley yes­ter­day for theft from a per­son un­known to the pros­e­cu­tor. Johnny Si­mons (45), a coloured man, was de­clared a ha­bit­ual crim­i­nal and re­ceived the in­de­ter­mi­nate sen­tence. This means he will serve nine to 15 years in prison.
