Brave burglar’ judge is rapped
"THE judge blasted for saying that burglars were “courageous” has been rapped by law chiefs.
Judge Peter Bowers sparked outrage with his comments as he freed a serial raider who had plundered three homes in five days.
He has now been slapped down by the Lord Chancellor and Lord Chief Justice, who said his remarks “damaged public confidence in the judicial process”.
