Pc conman jailed for four years

A former police officer has been jailed for four years after being found guilty of stealing almost £280,000 from an 89-year-old woman.
John Morgan, 48, of Frinton-on-Sea, Essex, lived lavishly on Joan Harpin's money while he was a constable with the Metropolitan Police.

Morgan, who resigned after being arrested, was convicted of obtaining money by deception and forgery.

He denied committing any offence during a trial at Basildon Crown Court.

Prosecutors told the court that Morgan met Miss Harpin five years ago when he was investigating bogus callers at her London home.
Over a three-year period Morgan, who later transferred to Essex police, stole the pensioner's savings and sold her home in Palmers Green, north London.

He gained access to Miss Harpin's assets by persuading her to give him power of attorney.

Miss Harpin, described as a timid and retiring spinster, said she became friends with him after he knocked on her door in the bogus workers inquiry.

Bet he begs to get into a nonce or segregation wing. The only place right for him as he will certainly get his just punishment on a normal wing
most ex policemen and prison officers go into segregation for obvious reasons
He gets 4 years (2 with good behaviour :x :x :x ) and I suppose she gets fcukall out the system financially for her misery.......
