The reality in several areas is that many are hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons, and nowhere is this truer than in the case of Adam Simmonds.
Is one of Britain’s first Police and Crime Commissioners and the first to appear in court. On 18th October 2016 he is accused of passing information about Tory MP Peter Bone to friends in the Conservative Party.
Adam Simmonds, 39, denied disclosing information relating to a criminal investigation into the Wellingborough MP when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
He’s accused of passing information about a criminal investigation into Mr Bone to Tory colleagues between November 2013 and May 2014, while he was still in his role.
The alleged breach took place between November 2013 and May 2014, when Simmonds was still in his role as Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), and is said to involve him passing the information to colleagues inside the Conservative Party. (Article from http://www.mirror.co.uk on 18th October 2016)
Mark Harries, defending for Simmonds, indicated that his client would plead not guilty to the charge and the case was sent to Southwark Crown Court.
