A man who viciously attacked a bus driver in Surrey earlier this year has been sentenced to two years behind bars on top of 31 months’ time already served.
Sean Tyler Quaye, 25, made a surprise guilty plea today.
He also received three years’ probation and a three-year ban on taking transit.
Quaye punched a Surrey bus driver so hard, the driver was left with a broken nose, broken facial bones and blurred vision.
Bus drivers who attended the hearing left smiling.
Union leader Nathan Woods says it’s great news.
“It’s long overdue to have a judge consider this type of sentencing. And for one, I think transit operators and riders especially happy that this has transpired today. It’s just the most amazing news.”
He does question, however, how Quaye’s transit ban will be enforced.
