A POLICE officer has narrowly avoided jail after throwing a mother out of her home.
Sergeant Christopher Hine unlawfully evicted the woman, who was renting a bungalow from him.
A court heard off-duty Hine, 50, his partner and two other men turned up to remove Catherine Baxter from the property. She was dragged out in tears, as shocked neighbours looked on.
Hine – Humberside Police's wildlife crime officer – has been given a
four-month prison sentence, suspended for a year, ordered to carry out
200 hours of work in the community and pay £1,400 costs.
My comment: A Police Sergeant who doesn't obey the law. Surely that is a sacking offence even if he escaped a jail term.
