John Abraham sentenced 15 days jail for Rash driving



Bollywood hunk John Abraham faces a 15-day prison term after a Mumbai court on Friday dismissed his appeal against a 2010 conviction for rash and negligent driving.

"Considering the fact that the victims suffered only simple injuries and the accused has been on bail throughout, he (John) may be released on bail," Justice R.C. Chavan said ordering the release of the actor and suspending his sentence.

In 2006, Abraham had crashed his bike and injured two pedestrians in Mumbai's Khar Danda area. He had also reportedly taken the victims, both of whom worked in a shop together, to the Bhabha Hospital.

The actor had filed a plea against the conviction in the same month and the Bandra metropolitan magistrate court had sentenced the actor to a jail term of 15 days.

The Mumbai sessions court's decision was pending till today. Now that lower court and Mumbai sessions court agree, the actor will reportedly be kept in court custody till he appeals for bail with the Bombay high court.
