Jailed burglar freed to care for children

burglar from Nottingham has been freed from jail on appeal so he can care for his five children.

Wayne Bishop was given an eight-month sentence in April for breaking into Mansfield Rugby Club and crashing into a police car as he made his getaway.

The 33-year-old argued the judgment breached the Human Rights Convention guaranteeing respect for family life.

The Court of Appeal agreed not enough attention was paid to the effect on his children and imposed a suspended term.
