A FORMER South Yorkshire Police constable has been charged after committing theft, fraud and misconduct - while still working for the force.

Jon Webb, 44, appeared at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on June 6 charged with 12 offences of theft, fraud and misconduct in a public office.

He was released on bail with certain conditions to next appear at Leeds Crown Court on June 20.

Allegations against Mr Webb were made in December 2012, when he was arrested and suspended from duty while officers from SYP Professional Standards conducted the internal investigation.

Mr Webb resigned as an officer in May 2013 while on police bail for these alleged offences. Mr Webb is alleged to have committed the offences when he was serving with South Yorkshire Police.

The courts should through the book at the disgrasefull person - he has clearly used his power, that as been abused! No wondered no one is interested in what the police say. Half of the police force are criminals anyway. He defo should get time for this. The police to say to work with them and not against, my questions is how? When this occurs?

Most of Police officers never do their job properly! But one I met who arrested me for assault! Said I looked like the victim when I was! if they had looked into it they would have found out I was framed by two best friends! & it had been planned to get money from me! I will never get over it till they are brought to justice!! I never thought someone could get prosecuted for something they had not done!!!

There are bad apples in all walks of life, if he's guilty then his crimes seem worse because of the uniform he wears. He should hang his head in shame, he'll be dreading prison , but that's where he'll go.

This person had a position of power and abused the trust that his uniorm gave him this is a sad show of todays society although i doubt he will get a prison sentence more like a conditional discharge or community service due to the position he previously held to be honest as did the previous officer who commited a crime of benefit fraud earlier this year personelly i cannot see what makes police officers any different to us joe public send them to prision but give them harsher sentences as they like us should no better !!!

His Honour Judge Luke has spoken obviously he doesn't believe in innocent until proven guilty.

I know exactly what they mean.... i often find myself annoyed by people trying to make their point...but find myself distracted by their poor grammer and english...haha..

Poor grammer and English... Its spot the mistakes on here today :) no doubt the officer in question will get a fair trial as at the end of the day he's commited theft and fraud which is more frowned upon than most other crimes nowadays!

So in one sentence you say "I cannot see what makes Police Officers any different from us joe public" and the next sentence says "send them to prison but give them harsher sentences"
So if they are no different, why should they get harsher sentences?
You don't make much sense I'm afraid!

People seem to forget that the police are just normal humans, being paid to do a job. In every aspect of society there is good people and bad, so it is no surprise that within the police you will find bad. The unfortunate thing is that we never get to hear what the police get right everyday so make our judgement of them based on articles like this! I personally would not want to live in a world where there was no police.

He will not go to a normal prison. If he gets a prison sentence at all he will go to a special prison in Derbyshire for bent coppers and others like them
