Why Did TOWIE Jake McLean Spent Time In Prison?
Back in December 2006, Jake McLean was one of the six robbers who broke into actor Joe Cuby’s home. At the time of the incident, his wife Branda Cuby (36-year-old at the time) and their three kids, two boys Joshua and Samuel, and a daughter, were in the six-bedroom home in Vineyards Road, Northaw.
Branda answered the door to two smartly-dressed teenagers. Jake, (18-year-old at the time) along with Chloe Doltis, who was of the same age, pretended to be a real estate agent as the million-pound home was on the market.
Grappled from behind in front of her screaming then seven-year-old daughter, Brenda was told she would be killed if she did not give them the key to the safe. Mother and daughter were forced into an upstairs bedroom, where they were joined by their two sons as their home was ransacked by the gang.
They pointed the gun directly at Joshua, who unknown to them had already called the police.
McLean, Dario Wokorach, 17, of Copperbeech, Ilford, and Tristan Harriette were arrested as they fled the scene on foot, but Courtney Mitchell, 17, of Clandon Road, Ilford sped off in a green Jaguar with Doltis and Dalton Lawal, 18, of Second Avenue, Dahenham. The six were all sentenced to aggravated burglary at St Albans Crown Court in 2008.
Announcing sentences of between three years, seven months, and five years with an extended license period, Judge Stephen Warner told them: “This was a planned and deliberate aggravated burglary. “It was a frightening ordeal to which you subjected Mrs. Cuby and her three children”.
After the hearing, Joe, who appeared in the 1960s television series The Prisoner, said: “Joshua was very quick-thinking I am very proud of him. We are particularly worried about Samuel who has been suffering from very bad asthma attacks since this happened”.
The Guardian reported that Jake was sentenced to three years and seven months. Reportedly, he only served half of his punishment and was in police custody for other crimes.
