Andrew McGarry offered £50,000 to fellow inmates to arrange a burglary and arson attack at his former partner’s home after he had been jailed for driving a burning car into the property.
An architect jailed for driving a burning car into his estranged wife’s home was today handed more prison time – for plotting another arson attack from his cell.
While locked up Andrew McGarry, 39, offered £50,000 to fellow inmates to arrange a burglary and arson attack at his ex’s home in Horwich, Bolton, where their three young children live.
But inmates told the authorities and today McGarry was handed a life sentence with a minimum six years behind bars on top of the eight years he is already serving.
He had previously been found guilty following a trial of three offences under Section 48 of the Serious Crime Act by supplying names, addresses, maps and directions to fellow inmates so they could arrange for his ex’s home to be torched.
