He is due to appear at Rotherham Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday morning.
Labour Group Statement

“It is absolutely right that those councillors shown by Professor Jay’s report to have failed through their action or inaction to protect Rotherham’s children from such awful crimes should be subject to disciplinary action, and so we welcome and support the action taken by the Labour Party today. After the report was published we asked for assistance from the national Labour Party to identify and deal with any disciplinary action required.
“Rotherham Labour Party commissioned Professor Jay’s report, fully accepted its findings and are determined to see all of its recommendations implemented as soon as possible. We can only achieve that, and regain the trust and confidence of the public we serve, if a thorough investigation is carried out so that those who failed so inexcusably in their duties, or stood in the way of this issue being tackled head on, are held to account.
“We give our firm commitment to the people of Rotherham that our absolute priority is doing everything we can to make sure victims of this heinous crime are receiving the proper support that has for so long been lacking. And, working with the police, we will work relentlessly to root out the perpetrators who have abused our borough’s children and make sure they are brought to justice.”
