Convicted paedophile gets £30,000 in legal aid to sue police for ‘wrongful arrest’

This kind of thing is really maddening. Does this guy really have a case to make?

Convicted back in 1980, serves times and later on rapes some old lady. Now then, if after the first offense the authorities had cut off the offending appendage and fixed him so that he’d have to piss thru a tube, there would have been no rape in ‘89. 

This sort of crap is really too depressing. Not to mention senseless, illogical and just plain stupid.

Convicted paedophile Robin Frampton is suing North Yorkshire Police for malicious prosecution

A convicted paedophile has launched a taxpayer-funded legal action against police who arrested him because they feared a woman was in danger.

Robin Frampton, 53, was staying with a woman he met through a television dating service after lying to her about who he was and keeping secret his sordid past, a court heard.

Police arrested him after discovering the paedophile and rapist had not signed on the sex offenders’ register and gave false details about where he was staying, in a town 250 miles from his home.

He was charged and spent 110 days on remand before the case was dropped shortly before his scheduled trial on a legal technicality.

Frampton was given Legal Aid to sue the North Yorkshire Police Chief Constable and yesterday his claim for wrongful arrest, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution was heard by a judge at Leeds County Court.

The case has already cost the taxpayer more than £30,000 and that figure is expected to rise.

Frampton, who also used the name Robert Williams, was categorised as a ‘high risk’ offender.

He was on the sex offenders’ register for life and had to regularly sign in at a local police station to comply with the terms.

The pervert, whose previous convictions included the rape of a 71-year-old woman and a sex attack on a young schoolgirl, was living in Fareham, Hampshire, with his wife.

The court heard he lied to his wife by telling her he was visiting a male friend, but drove to Selby in North Yorkshire instead, to stay with Lisa Stirling, a woman he met through a dating channel.

Frampton said he hoped a ‘relationship’ might develop that would enable him to start a new life with her.

He admitted he lied to her by claiming to be a single petrol tanker driver. ‘I told her loads of lies, I didn’t tell her I was a sex offender,’ he said.

On Saturday 15 July 2006, shortly after arriving in Yorkshire, he made a ‘courtesy’ visit to the local police station to tell them he was in the area, but handed an out-of-date document that indicated he was no longer required to sign on the sex offenders’ register.

He also gave ‘false’ details for where he was staying and who he was with.

Police became suspicious when Frampton was spotted in his car and a check on the vehicle showed it was listed under a different name.

They contacted Hampshire police who discovered from his wife he had not been home since the previous Thursday.

Under the terms of the register Frampton was obliged to sign in at a police station within three days after moving to a new area, the court heard.

Police traced his car to Miss Stirling’s address and he was arrested in his boxer shorts at 9 am on Sunday 16 July.

Detective Constable Eric Davies said he ordered the arrest because he believed the three-day period had elapsed and he feared the woman he was with could be in ‘danger.’ DC Davies was also concerned Frampton did not have ‘medication’, which the complainant denied had been prescribed to control his sexual urges.

Frampton was charged with giving false details and failing to comply with the terms of the sexual offenders register.

If the legal requirement to sign the register is not met, a sex offender can be prosecuted and sent back to jail.

However, the case was later dropped because Frampton was technically still within the time limit for registering at a police station when arrested.

Frampton has a shocking history of offending. In 1980 he was jailed for two years at Dorchester Crown court for threatening girls aged nine and 10 with a knife and attempting to rape one of them. In 1989 he was given an eight-year sentence for forcing his way into a 71-year-old woman’s home and raping her.

In 1999 a one-year sentence at Southampton Crown Court for a shocking knifepoint indecent assault on a prostitute was later increased to three years by the Court of Appeal. This longer sentence meant he had to sign on the sex offenders register for life rather than just five years.

Frampton’s lawyer Rodney Ferm told the judge: ‘All of us have rights, including the right not to be wrongfully arrested. We also have rights, provided by European legislation, for our private life not to be interfered with.’

He said his client was arrested despite ‘no offence of any kind’ being committed.

The judge will make a written judgement at a later date.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
