Face of dad jailed for aiding killer son
3:22pm Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
A SHOTGUN killer's dad has been jailed for three-and-a-half years for helping his son evade police.
Michael Bulat, 61, moved a van son Darren Jewell had used in the murder of Anthony Prickett and lied to police officers.
It gave Jewell, of John Street, Brightlingsea, time to escape.
Bulat, of Beaumont Close, Walton, claimed he had no idea what his son had done.
But it took the jury at Chelmsford Crown Court 20 minutes to return a unanimous guilty verdict.
