A former Labour mayor and his wife have been jailed for 15 months and eight months respectively for falsely claiming almost £50,000 in benefits. The former mayor of Sefton and his wife were found guilty of conspiracy to defraud. They were also convicted at Liverpool Crown Court of exaggerating ill-health to obtain disability living allowance. Judge Lewis said: “It is apparent that as the two of you postured in your civic finery being chauffeured around in your publicly funded limousine then, and for some years before, you systematically cheated the community which had honoured you. It is a disgraceful breach of trust.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/1/hi/england/merseyside/7125046.stm

He pleaded guilty to four charges of voyeurism and one for gross indecency. Judge Tom Longbotham said: “Sadly the offences that you have committed are such that they represent a very serious breach of trust apart from anything else.
