Aberdeen councillor Scott Cassie jailed

A former Aberdeen councillor who admitted charges relating to the embezzlement of thousands of pounds from a sports society has been jailed.

Scott Cassie, 60, who resigned as a councillor last month, admitted taking £13,500 from Kaimhill Outdoor Sports Society.

He admitted the offences which took place while he was working as a city councillor.

Cassie was jailed for a year at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

Sheriff Edward Savage said the public expected the highest degree of honesty and probity in elected representatives.
