Sentencing Due To Be Handed Down In November

04.11.2013

Former Cleveland Police officer Wayne Scott is set to be sentenced next month after being found guilty of rape in a trial at Newcastle Crown Court.

The 37-year-old Stockton man, who had already admitted to other sexual offences in relation to another victim, had denied rape in relation to an incident in 2006 and an attempted rape.

Mr Scott was originally arrested in August 2011 following on-duty allegations and was subsequently suspended and dismissed by Cleveland Police. He has been remanded in custody and will now be sentenced on 23 December.

Peter McPhillips, detective superintendent of Cleveland Police, said: “The offences for which Scott has been convicted of today occurred off-duty but as a police officer he knew better than most the severity of his crimes.  

“He was a disgrace to his uniform and there can be no place for people like him in the police service.”

Cleveland Police have also asked for anyone who believes they may have been a victim of Scott to get in touch either via the dedicated number 01642 302286 or the non-emergency number 101.
