Police chief steals but ESCAPES JAIL

11 charges and he gets a suspended sentence, would a civilian get that I wonder.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Police chief steals thousands from PTA and Scouts but ESCAPES JAIL

A POLICE chief who swindled thousand of pounds from a school PTA and a local Scout group has dodged jail.

Superintendent Andrew Carr, 47, nicked 14,000 from the groups while he was treasurer for both.

The senior policeman walked away on Friday with a 12-month suspended sentence.

Carr, who served with Wiltshire Police since 2004, took 7,259 from Orchid Vale Primary School PTA in Swindon and 6,742 from the 7th Swindon Scouts over the course of 18 months.

Bournemouth Crown Court heard most of the money was taken from fundraising events such as Christmas and Halloween parties, which Carr would rush out with to "count".

He forged signatures to cash cheques and got people to sign blank cheques which he then filled in.

The ex-copper would then take money from one group to repay the other.

Carr also made up a scrutineer's report to the Scouts' committee and an independent examiner's report to the trustees of the group executive in a bid to cover his tracks.

He had been treasure of the Scout group since 2008 and of the PTA since 2007 - but suspicions were raised in September last year and a police investigation began.

Carr pleaded guilty to 11 offences relating to matters of fraud by abuse of position, forgery and false accounting.

Re: Police chief steals but ESCAPES JAIL

Agreed Ted , but not only Andrew Carr the thieving copper , his friends on the bench that permitted such an apallingly lenient sentence.

All in it together

Just think, you can get a prison sentence for not paying your T.V. licence or Council Tax !

Re: Police chief steals but ESCAPES JAIL

IMHO the sentence and those who colluded should be reviewed immediately. I would like to see the outcome of similar cases brought before the same bench over the last 5 years.

Appalling, at the very least the money should be taken and repaid from his pension fund.

Re: Police chief steals but ESCAPES JAIL

Isn't that also the same or very similar to what our government has been doing to us for and has never been punished for it.

I would have thought the school should have contacted the parents before the police took her away, and, if they could not be contacted have sent someone with her to the station.
