Sexual Predator: Ex-Cop Caged For String of Savage Sex Crimes

Wayne Scott, 37, was put behind bars for raping and attempting to rape a woman while on patrol.

He also admitted to raping one woman seven times over a number of years as well as two common assaults, one sexual assault and two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual touching.

After sentencing, a senior police official labelled him a “sexual deviant and predator” and said he is pleased he will be off the streets.

Detective Superintendent Peter McPhillips of Cleveland Police said Scott is a “predator” who has never shown any remorse.

He said: “Wayne Scott is a sexual deviant and a predator who manipulated his victims and had a significant detrimental impact on their lives.

Yet he has never exhibited any remorse and he does not appear to understand the horrific nature of his crimes.

I would like to pay tribute to all of his victims, in particular those who we managed to trace and who were brave enough to provide us with the details of his crimes.”

Scott was dismissed by Cleveland Police when a member of the public said he had touched her sexually when on duty.

Other women then began to come forward to complain of similar offences before he was finally arrested in August 2011 and reprimanded.

It is believed the crimes dated back to when he joined the force in 2002. Judge James Goss QC described Scott as “manipulative and controlling” as he sentenced him at Newcastle Crown Court today.

He said: “Your offending has had an enormous impact on the wellbeing, confidence and lives of those against whom you offended, destroying their lives.”

Scott, formerly of Stockton, Teesside, has twice attempted to kill himself since being in custody. He tried jumping from a prison balcony and leaping from a moving vehicle while on his way to a medical examination.

Det Sup McPhillips added: “I hope this sentence will send a positive message to victims of sexual abuse, that we will listen to them and together with our partners work with them to bring offenders to justice.”
