Disgraced Aberdeen councillor Alan Donnelly has been accused of showing no remorse for his actions after strolling into a civic function “bold as brass”.
The 65-year old former depute provost was spotted at a Town House event to celebrate the success of local foodbank and social enterprise Cfine last week.
It came just days after he was fined and given supervision for sexually assaulting a man at a city centre function.
Donnelly was found guilty at trial of touching his victim’s face, hair and body, and kissing him on the face.
While he has resigned from the Conservative party and been stripped of his council committee positions, he remains a representative for Torry and Ferryhill.
His colleagues have urged him to resign but admit that, under current laws, they are “powerless” to force him out.
Liberal Democrat councillor Steve Delaney said Donnelly’s attendance at a civic event showed he was a “law unto himself and answerable to nobody”.
He added: “Others would have hung their heads in shame following such a conviction, but not Councillor Donnelly.
“Joining a company of dedicated volunteers who provide support to members of the public who are often vulnerable when they are down on their luck, must surely be considered to be extremely poor judgement on his part, arrogance or both.”
Donnelly could not be reached for comment.
