He received a two year suspended sentence and was ordered to undertake 180 hours of unpaid work, as well as paying £550 in prosecution costs.

Yeates lost his job as deputy director of finance with the Worcestershire Mental Health Partnership and NHS Trust in 2007 but lead a double life, telling his family he was still in employment.

ACCA President

This must be a real smack in the teeth for ACCA.

It just shows that no-one is perfect, after all.

As I read the details I couldn't help

but wonder, possibly in disbelief, whether there is a hidden story/events behind this. With someone of that calibre and status you just don't want to believe it.

One can never condone this sort of thing and as an ACCA member I am highly embarassed.

However I also note that had it not been for the other Woman, then this case may have remained a family matter.

Certainly no action has been taken against MP's for much larger amounts I wonder why this case was pusued when MP's have escaped similar justice.

Fair treatment ??? human rights ??

If Dennis was in love then his mind was disturbed by hormones!

Surely love is a sickness which causes insanity.
