Britain - Immigrant Smuggling Trial

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from Maidstone, England, that a jury found Dutch truck driver Perry Wacker guilty of manslaughter today in the deaths of 58 illegal Chinese migrants. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Wacker transported the Chinese migrants in his truck on a ferry from Belgium to Dover last year.
