A top judge has said he was ‘probably doing the wrong thing’ as he let a burglar walk free. Judge Simon Bourne-Arton QC made the comment as he sentenced Jason Dalfred Wheatley who was once given a three-year jail-term for being a passenger in a stolen car which killed an eight-year-old boy.He passed a 10-month prison sentence, but suspended it, telling Wheatley: ‘I strongly believe that you should be ordered to serve that immediately.’But I am just going to give you one last chance. But understand this; it is your last chance.’He suspended the sentence for two years with 18 months’ supervision and a year’s drug rehabilitation.He added: ‘I firmly believe I’m probably doing the wrong thing here. If you come back before me I will know I’ve done the wrong thing. Gee…you think? Whilst, I applaud any man that gives another human being a helping hand… However, this is a career criminal. He has served time for being in a stolen car that killed an 8-year old child. Of course…that didn’t stop him…it won’t… Nothing will. Well, ok…two things will: himself…or being in prison for say…10-years…that will stop him burgling… The judge is worried he may have it wrong but he knows how to check …he will know if he appears before him again… Heh…I’m sure that will be great comfort to the next victims of this waste of perfectly good skin… http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2294434/Judge-admits-jailing-serial-burglar-mistake-sentencing–lets-walk-free.html
