On July 4 at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court, PC Stephen
McMillan, 26, pleaded guilty to three counts of possessing indecent
photographs of the child and one count of possessing an extreme
pornographic image.
At a hearing yesterday, he was sacked for “discreditable conduct”, the Met said this evening.
the court hearing he was given a 12-week suspended sentence; a 24-month
rehabilitation sex offender order; was placed on the Sex Offenders’
Register for five years; and ordered to pay £700 costs.
commissioner Helen King said: “The offences to which PC McMillan pleaded
guilty to are serious ones and offences that rightly cause significant
public concern.
“At a time when much work has been done to improve
the confidence of victims to report child sex abuse and all sexual
offences to the police, the negative impact of an officer being
convicted of making, possessing and distributing an indecent image of a
child is very obvious.
“These convictions are so serious and the
impact on public confidence is such that the only appropriate outcome in
this case is for PC McMillan to be dismissed without notice
