Caught in the act, yet walk free.
Whilst 2 burglars were breaking into a house with a crowbar a neighbour took a photo of them.
They fled with a plasma TV, laptop and Nintendo DS worth £1,400.
The neighbour gave the photo to the police and the pair were arrested and admitted the burglary.
But rather than lock up the serial crooks, the judge gave them a "final chance" to go straight.
One was given a one-year suspended sentence and ordered to attend a drug scheme.
The other was given an 18 months supervision order.
They didn't even get a fine.

Police don't bother with burgulars these days as the courts don't treat it as a crime anymore .....maybe I'll get my mates in 'Pool to rob all the judges houses see how they like it!

Aren't judges still under orders to avoid jailing burglers because of a lack of prison space?

Cheryl Cole's brother, Andrew Tweedy, has been allowed to walk free after pleading guilty to common assault, attacking a man by spraying him with pepper spray (which is also considered to be a 'prohibited weapon' (does that mean that some weapons are permitted?)
Long story short, he gets 100 hours community service and has to pay £250 compensation.
Judge David Hodson said Tweedy's record - he has been convicted on 30 occasions for 82 separate offences since 1993 - was "pretty atrocious" but said he would spare him a jail term because he believed he would finally be able to put his offending behind him.
Now, I'm all for giving someone a second chance, but come on!!!
