By kcora on

The 36-year-old getaway driver convicted in the fatal Short Hills Mall carjacking has been sentenced to life in prison.

Basim Henry admitted driving three men to the mall so they could steal a vehicle in December 2013 that ultimately led to the death of Dustin Friedland, 30.

Despite Henry attorney's argument that Henry wasn’t responsible for the shooter’s actions, prosecutors stated that he was aware that some type of force would be necessary in order to get the vehicle.

Trial dates for the other three men have not been set.
