Sentencing set for Australian fake-collar-bomber
Sydney: An Australian investment banker who chained a fake bomb to a 18-year-old woman`s neck in a bizarre extortion attempt will be sentenced on June 21.
Paul Douglas Peters pleaded guilty this month to aggravated break and enter and committing a serious indictable offense by knowingly detaining Madeleine Pulver.
Pulver was alone in her family`s Sydney home in August when Peters broke in, tethered a bomb-like device to her neck along with a note demanding money and then left. It took a bomb squad 10 hours to free her.
Peters fled to the US and was arrested at his ex-wife`s home in Kentucky.
Peters appeared in a Sydney court by video from jail on Friday and said nothing apart from thanking the judge after sentencing was set. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
