Extortionist given 13.5 years for collar bomb hoax

The man who strapped a fake collar bomb on a teenage school girl in Sydney last year, has been sentenced to 13 and a half years in prison.

Paul Peters broke in to the home of the Pulvers’ in August last year and strapped a fake bomb around 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver’s neck, before fleeing the house, leaving behind an extortion note.

52-year-old Peters pleaded guilty to aggravated break and enter and detaining for advantage, in March this year.

He will not be eligible for parole for at least 10 years.

The family has welcomed the sentence, saying they are now looking forward to moving on with their lives.
