Cop sent naked selfie to sex assault victim & said he wanted to handcuff her after being ‘aroused by her short skirt’ | The Sun

A MARRIED cop sent a naked selfie to a sex assault victim and told her he wanted to handcuff her to a bed.

Sergeant Rob Adams also said he was "aroused" by her being groped and told her he "didn't blame" the creep.

The dad-of-two sent another X-rated picture to a PCSO and stuck a photo of a female colleague's face on a pornographic picture and sent it as a Secret Santa gift.

Adams, 39, has now been sacked and banned from being a police officer ever again after a disciplinary hearing.

The cop was previously protected by an anonymity order but can be named for the first time following outrage from sex assault charities and a bid by the media to overturn the reporting restriction.

The hearing was told Adams met the victim in March 2014 after she was groped by a man who put a hand up her skirt in a bar in Hastings.

She was giving an official police statement in his patrol car when the cop, who was married with a baby at the time, began making inappropriate comments.

The woman, known as Miss A, told the hearing: “About the guy putting his hand up my skirt he said something like: 'I don’t really blame him. Fair play to him'.

"I admit my dress was a bit short but does it give anyone the right to put their hand up it? He said he would do the same thing.

“He said he was getting aroused when I told him about the encounter with that guy.”

She continued: "He asked if I liked him. It was just weird. He was creepy. I was shocked. He was a police officer in uniform.”

The woman also told the panel how Adams said he wanted to use his handcuffs on her.

She said she thought she was reporting a sexual assault to someone she could “trust” and was meant to “protect” her.

The victim added: “I don’t even remember how it ended but I think I tried to laugh it off because it was an awkward situation really.”

The victim told the hearing that just hours later she received a naked selfie from the same officer.

She did not report the cop because he was a serving officer and “a man of power” but bumped into him at court when her attacker went on trial.

Miss A only reported the incident after the Adams cropped up press reports about a written warning he received for his behaviour in 2020.

Harry Ireland, chair of the disciplinary panel, said Sergeant Adams was guilty of “deliberate, persistent predatory behaviour” with “malign intent.”

He said the panel was left with no choice but to dismiss the officer with immediate effect and ban him from ever serving in a police force again.

It comes after Sussex Police was forced to launch a probe into the behaviour of male officers following a string of scandals.

Chief Superintendent Lisa Bell from the Professional Standards Department said: "Police officers must behave in a manner that does not discredit the police service or undermine public confidence, whether on or off duty.

"All staff are aware of appropriate professional boundaries and the serious consequences of any abuses of position.

“The victim in this case came forward to report a sexual assault and should have received a professional and compassionate response. Instead, she was met with seriously inappropriate and unprofessional comments.

"The decision to dismiss this officer is fully supported as there can be no place in the service for those that make sexual advances to any member of the public.”
