Cop jail for rape in 1978
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.
