Ahrrus Hussain, 29, of Densham Road, Stratford was sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court to four years and nine months yesterday. He pleaded guilty to causing the death of Raxmo Sharif by dangerous driving in Leytonstone on July 25 last year.
In addition he admitted causing the death while driving uninsured and was sentenced to 12 months to run concurrently. He was also disqualified for seven years and ordered to take a re-test.
