GROW RIPPER GETS SENTENCED FOR MANSLAUGHTER
A 21-year-old Surrey man was sentenced to nearly two years in jail
this week for his role in a fatal grow-rip gone wrong on No. 4 Road in
Milad Saffari appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court on Monday,
where he was sentenced to two years less a day in jail, received a
three-year term of probation, and is prohibited from possessing a
firearm for the rest of his life. He has also been required to submit
a sample of his DNA for registration purposes.
Saffari pled guilty to manslaughter last year after he was originally
charged with second-degree murder.
Saffari, Vancouver's Parminder Singh Soor and two youths broke into a
house at 8391 No. 4 Rd., just south of Blundell nearly two years ago.
They had entered the house looking to steal marijuana, but a
confrontation ensued between them and a gardener who was tending the
lucrative illegal crop.
Vancouver's Vi Soi Hoang, 41, was beaten to death in front of the house.
Soor was sentenced in Richmond provincial court to six months in jail
for breaking and entering with intent to commit an indictable offence.
