Two of PC Andrew Harper's killers plan to write a book about their crime


Two of PC Andrew Harper's killers are planning to write a book about their crime and have enlisted the help of a "staff member" in prison because neither can read or write.

  • Money earned as a result of a crime or in connection with a crime can be confiscated
  • Sources said the two strutted around Belmarsh Prison like celebrities
  • The killers also have plans to appeal their convictions and sentences

Two of the teenagers who killed police officer Andrew Harper are said to be writing a book about their horrific crimes.

It is also alleged that neither Albert Bowers nor Jessie Cole, both 18, can read or write, so they hired someone in prison to help them write the book.

But any money earned as a result of a crime or in connection with a crime can be confiscated.

They also have plans to appeal their convictions and 13 years of manslaughter.

Sources told the Sun that the two killers "strutted around like celebrities" at Belmarsh Prison in south London.

Bowers and Cole "love the attention" and talk about the money they think their book will make them with, a source said.

'They really do act like VIPs. If they carry on, someone will see that they come to earth – with a bump. & # 39;

Bowers, Cole and Henry Long, 19, were jailed for manslaughter after their getaway vehicle dragged 28-year-old PC Harper over a mile near Bradfield Southend, Berkshire on August 28 last year.

The traffic cop had tried to deter the trio from a traveling parish in Reading and got away with a stolen £ 10,000 quad.

The teens cheered and cheered over the video link from Belmarsh Prison as they were freed from the murder but found guilty of manslaughter last month.

Long, the driver of the car, who previously admitted manslaughter, was sentenced to 16 years in prison, and Cole and Bowers were each given 13 years in prison.

PC Harper's widow, Lissie, stands up for anyone convicted of the murder of a 999 worker to save life under Harper Law.

Conservative MP John Howell said he would propose changing guidelines for sentencing police killers after meeting PC Harper's relatives.
