Eric Millar

Eric Millar, a violent male transvestite, was convicted in 1999 of multiple rapes of a young girl between 1987 and 1994. He was jailed for 10 years. At the time Millar was a constable in the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC).

Millar first attacked the girl when she was a 14-year-old member of a scout pack where he was a leader and admitted crossdressing in black stockings, suspenders and high heels “for sexual pleasure”. Millar’s victim reported him after she became a police officer herself.

At the trial, Lord Justice McDermott admonished Millar for instructing his lawyers to put details of the victim’s private life in the public domain: “Every piece of ‘dirt’ that he could find was put to her. He sought to have her shamed and disgraced,” he said. The judge added that the RUC officer and scoutmaster had taken advantage of his position of trust and of the 15-year-old girl’s fear of him and had “damaged her for life”.
