Two of the teenagers who killed Police Constable Andrew Harper are reported to be planning to write a book about their horrific crimes.
It is also claimed that neither Albert Bowers nor Jessie Cole, both 18, can read or write so they have commissioned someone in prison to help them write the book.
But any money made as a result of a crime or in connection to a crime can be confiscated.

They also have plans to appeal against their convictions and 13-year manslaughter sentences.
Sources told the Sun the two killers are ‘strutting around like celebrities’ in Belmarsh Prison in South London.
Bowers and Cole are ‘loving the attention’ and talking about the money they think their book with will make them, a source said.
‘They really are acting like VIPs. If they carry on, somebody will make sure they come down to earth — with a bump.’
Bowers, Cole and Henry Long, 19, were jailed for manslaughter after their getaway vehicle dragged PC Harper, 28, for over a mile near Bradfield Southend, Berkshire, on August, 15 last year.
The traffic constable had been trying to stop the trio, from a travelling community in Reading, getting away with a stolen £10,000 quad bike.
The teenagers whooped and cheered over the videolink from Belmarsh Prison as they were cleared of murder but found guilty of manslaughter last month.
Long, the driver of the car who had previously admitted manslaughter, was jailed for 16 years and Cole and Bowers were given 13 years each.
PC Harper’s widow Lissie is campaigning for anyone convicted of killing a 999 worker to get life under ‘Harper’s Law’.
Conservative MP John Howell has said he will suggest looking into changing the sentencing guidelines for police killers after meeting PC Harper’s relatives.
