Kāpiti Coast District Councillor David Scott has been immediately removed from his council seat following a failed attempt to appeal his indecent assault conviction.
The Court of Appeal released its judgement yesterday, dismissing Scott’s appeal against his conviction and sentence.
Despite that, the 73-year-old said he would continue his fight to clear his name and would “never apologise” to anyone.
“I will go to the Supreme Court, yes. It depends on the cost, I’ll mortgage my house if I have to.”
