Sydney - In August 2011 investment banker Paul Douglas Peters attached a mock collar-bomb to Madeleine Pulver inside her Mosman home in a failed extortion attempt. Eleven days later he was arrested in the US.
Today Judge Peter Zahra handed down a sentence of thirteen and a half years of which a minimum of ten years must be served before parole can be granted.
Madeleine Pulver arrived at Downing Centre District Court with some family members, including her parents Bill and Belinda, just before 10am to hear the sentencing.
At just after midday they emerged and spoke to the awaiting media.
Madeleine spoke to the media first, saying “I am pleased with today’s outcome and that I can now look to a future without Paul Peter’s name being linked to mine.
“I realise it is going to take quite some time, to come to terms with what happened, but today was important because now the legal process is over.
“For me it was never about the sentencing, but to know that he will not re-offend. And it was good to hear the judge acknowledged the trauma he has put my family and me through.”
