here and there's more
here about his legal aid
I knew this man, and trusted him as a policeman. I don't think he should be allowed his police pension, regardless of how long he was in the force, he betrayed the trust others had in him. I do know someone though who thinks he should be able to get it all.
I am genuienly interested to hear what others think

It is quite shocking isn't it? he was in my house on more than one occasion! it's shocking to think what he could have done

I understand the feeling, but you pay in for a pension don't you so I suppose that's got to be a seperate thing. If it was a reward for good service that would be different.

He only served seven years for two rapes? Bloody hell. Should be grateful he's not in for 15, not bellyaching about his ruddy pension. (I note he's still receiving part of it anyway.)

Would be appropriate if one of his victims sued. Although I expect the last thing they would want is to have anything to do with this scum ever again.

Onager, he is getting the part of the pension covered by his own contributions - just not the employer's contributions.

They probably see him a lot, as he is back living in Dumfries and walks about as bold as brass!hmm

No way should he get the employers' contribution bit. As I understand it that's very clear from his terms of employment.

I am tempted to suggest that he should get all his police pension, but that his victims should be awarded damages against him that will conveniently eat it all up when paid in installments. Probably tricky to manage, though.

Morally he def shouldnt get it, but practically i suppose it depends on his terms of employment and contract, hopefully they were explicit and he will have no case

Edam, maybe that is ok then. I suppose it depends on the contract.

And yeah I'd have no problem with the victims suing and leaving him penniless. I do think an officer who commits crimes has committed an extra one because of his position.

D&G constabulary waited until he was charged and jailed before dismissing him

I'm inclined to think that rape is more than gross misconduct, but I get your point.
