A judge has spared a burglar prison because his sisters have said they will move him away from Derbyshire and try keep him out of trouble.Or perhaps just keep him off Recorder Ward's patch?
Recorder Ward said: "Until I got to the part in this case where I read letters from your family it seemed the realistic thing was to send you to jail but it is the letters from your sisters that have made me change my decision.*sigh*
"Because of what they say I can let you go to Wales and see if you can stay off the drugs and keep out of trouble. I am sure you are aware this is not just a case of geography and you are going to need a great deal of support."
A teenager who has committed burglaries since he was 14 was spared a prison sentence so he can be a "brilliant dad" to his baby daughter.Oh, for...! His name's Mark Badman. Yes, really!
Badman's partner Chelsea Bartlett told the court: "I had my baby three months early and he was there with me when I did. She is nearly six months old now.Someone in the comments disagrees:
"He is a brilliant dad to his daughter. I think having her has really made an impression on him."
