MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — A Bloomington man has been sentenced Thursday afternoon to over 40 years in prison for causing a crash that killed a mother and her two sons.
Rufus Victor, 29, was fleeing from a state trooper on Dec. 5, 2010 when he smashed into a car driven by 29-year-old Amanda Thomas. The woman, her 12-year-old son Andre and 3-month-old Akeron were killed.
In August, Victor agreed to a plea deal just as a jury was about to be selected in Hennepin County District Court. He pleaded guilty to fleeing police in a motor vehicle causing death.
