Police Officer convicted of 1978 rape

Forty years ago, a woman in Leeds couldn’t afford to pay a fine. West Yorkshire Police Warrant Officer David Lomax told her she’d go to jail and her young daughter could be taken away unless she agreed to sex with him. He then raped her in her bedroom.
Although the woman reported the incident, she was told Lomax couldn’t be charged for lack of evidence.
Last week, Lomax, now 83, was convicted of rape and misconduct in a public office and sentenced to four years and nine months.
“You probably thought that you had got away with it, while your victim has spent 40 years suffering as a result of what you have done.”
