Rapist David Goodwillie’s Spouse Tucked over finances as footie Genius fought for taxpayers’ Money for Charm bid

RAPIST David Goodwillie’s spouse was drilled within her finances as the footie genius fought taxpayers’ cash to help conceal his name.

Kirstie Goodwillie had to detail her resources before legal aid chiefs agreed to fund hubby’s appeal against a court ruling that he raped Denise Clair, 30.

The Scottish Legal Aid Board said: “We conduct a thorough assessment of the applicant and their partner’s bank statements and payslips.

“If we provide legal aid in these situations the applicant might need to donate towards legal costs.”

Ex-Miss Scotland finalist Kirstie, 25, married Goodwillie, 28, last June — months prior to a judge ordered him to pay victim Denise #100,000 compo to its 2011 attack.

Following January’s rape ruling the player quit English League Two side Plymouth Argyle to “concentrate on a possible appeal”.

It’s thought he had been jobless when his lawful aid bid was filed — but the striker has signed for League two side Clyde.

His appeal will be heard at the Court of Session in Edinburgh next month.
