    Councillor sold partner for sex
    A councillor who advertised his girlfriend for sex over the internet has been given a suspended sentence.
    Prosecuting, Stuart Clarkson told Wolverhampton Crown Court the woman had an IQ of 52 and mild learning disabilities.

    "She is easily led and was not able to give informed consent to sexual activity in return for money.

    "Men would come to the house, pay her and she would surrender the money to the defendant."

    Burkitt, who represents Charlemont with Grove Vale ward, and formerly of Beaconview Road, had been in a relationship with her for eight years.

    He was arrested on 5 March last year after she told her family what was going on.

    In mitigation, Andrew Fisher said she had consented to the work and that it was to help them out of financial difficulties.

    "He thought both of them could put themselves forward to earn money on the site, but to nobody's surprise there was little interest in him."

    He said the woman made the accusation after she mistakenly believed he was seeing another woman.

    Burkitt was handed a 12-month sentence suspended for two years.
