What's a convicted criminal under house arrest got to do to get night off to attend her bachelorette party? Not much, actually, it seems. The Daily Mail reports: "A bride-to-be who burgled her friend's home has had her curfew lifted so she can stay out late on her wedding day. Nichola Crombie, who was today electronically tagged for six months for the break-in, is also allowed to stay out after her 8pm deadline tomorrow so she can enjoy her hen night. The 31-year-old had been ordered to be under house arrest every night between 8pm and 7am as part of a suspended sentence for the raid at Lorraine Anderson's home." [Daily Mail]
