Hanging Judge Neild hands out 6 years for burglary

By johnboy 23 May 2011 21

The ABC reports on a tough six year prison stint for Patrick Tate handed down by our visiting acting Justice John Nield.

The four offences were committed while serving periodic detention for earlier burglaries.

Rocket Surgeon Tate was breaking windows and cutting himself, leaving DNA evidence aplenty.

In sentencing, acting Justice John Nield said he does not believe Tate is remorseful for his actions and doubts he has good prospects for rehabilitation.

He was sentenced to six years jail with a non-parole period of four years.
