A former Brackley town councillor has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a young girl.
Stuart Dancer, aged 66, of Ellesmere Close in Brackley, was a Brackley Town councillor from May 2003 until May 2007.
After a trial at Northampton Crown Court, a jury unanimously found him guilty of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in Brackley in April last year
Dancer will be sentenced at a hearing in September.
The former town councillor appeared in the Brackley and Towcester Advertiser in 2011 when he submitted plans to build a service station, hotel and restaurant on a four-and-a-half acre plot he owned with his brother-in-law.
But it was refused because developing the ‘out of town’ site on the A43 between Buckingham Road and the Tesco roundabout would be ‘detrimental to the character of surrounding countryside’.
