Daily Star - - NEWS -

A FOR­MER po­lice of­fi­cer who raped a mother af­ter she was un­able to pay a fine has been jailed nearly 40 years af­ter the of­fence.

David Lo­max, 83, was serv­ing with West York­shire Po­lice when he vis­ited the woman at her home in Leeds in 1978.

Leeds Crown Court heard how Lo­max threat­ened her with cus­tody over the non-pay­ment but then of­fered an “es­cape route” by tak­ing her up­stairs and rap­ing her in her be­d­room.

Lo­max, now of Water­looville, Hants, sat mo­tion­less as a jury con­victed him by ma­jor­ity ver­dict. He was jailed for four years and nine months.
