London, Tue, 31 Jan 2012 ANI

London, Jan 31 (ANI): The two men who tried to blackmail Coleen Rooney for 5,000 pounds for pictures taken with hubby Wayne and son Kai, have been jailed.


The photos were on her digital camera, which ended up in the hands of Lee Platt after she lost it at a concert.


Platt, 29, recognised personal pictures of Manchester United star Rooney and the couple's two-year-old son Kai on the memory card.


With his girlfriend Jennifer Green and accomplice Steven Malcolm, he tried to sell the photos and camera back to them.


The trio initially demanded 1,000 pounds but upped this to 5,000 pounds, and also tried to sell the images to Hello! magazine and two tabloid newspapers, the Manchester Crown Court revealed.


Platt was jailed for two years after admitting blackmail and receiving stolen goods at an earlier hearing.


His co-defendant, Steven Malcolm, 42, was jailed for 20 months for the same offences, the Daily Mail reported.


Platt got his hands on the memory stick of Coleen's camera, which went missing while she was watching a pop concert at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester on May 24, 2010.


Platt's girlfriend, Green, 26, was sentenced to a 12-month community order and told to perform 40 hours of unpaid work after admitting assisting in the retention of stolen goods. (ANI)
