But yesterday his professional reputation was called into question after Judge Deborah Taylor delivered a withering assessment of his previous work for Surrey Police on the King case. before he left the force in October 2000 Mr Williams-Thomas was the detective who interviewed the first man to accuse King of sexual assault. He was subsequently accused – and acquitted – of blackmail in an unrelated case.
Yesterday the judge said: ‘During the investigation into that offence a document was found on his computer offering for sale names and introductions to victims of Mr King.

Interesting indeed. I like the bit where it says that he has claimed to have solved high profile cases, not that he actually has.

Here is the earlier topic about him.

We had wondered why he left the Surrey Police abruptly when apparently he loved the job. Now it looks as if we know why.

His convictions certainly don't look sound to me.

From the piece.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: ‘We recognise there were serious organisational failings in the investigation, particularly in relation to disclosure.’
The force ‘deeply regret we did not meet the required standards to ensure a fair trial. For this we wholeheartedly apologise.’
The spokesman added that the force had commissioned an ‘independent review’ and a formal complaint by King was now being investigated. However, Chief Constable Nick Ephgrave had ‘no intention of resigning’.

Strange how the force themselves commission a "independent review" you would think there would be some automatic trigger that sets off an investigation rather than rely on the bent force to start one themselves.
