Jailed: Paul Horner, of Whinney Hill Park, Brighouse

A burglar who broke into a doctor’s house in Hipperholme while the occupiers were asleep in bed has been jailed for more than three years.

Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC described 38-year-old Paul Horner as ‘a career criminal’ after highlighting his previous convictions for house burglary and the various prison sentences he had served over the past decade.

Horner’s latest crime, which was committed in February, meant he qualified for a minimum prison term of at least three years under the so-called ‘’three strikes’’ legislation and Judge Durham Hall sentenced him to 44 months in jail.
