He was then arrested and charged at the Kirinyaga Law Court with two counts of causing death through dangerous driving.

Jaguar was convicted and ordered to pay a fine of Sh40,000 or face imprisonment for six months. He was further barred from driving for a one year period.

He now supports the families of the victims.
