Jail for shamed sex cop
A COP who used his job to target vulnerable women for sex was jailed for four years yesterday. Married PC Kenny Lewis “systematically and shamelessly” homed in on women he had met in the course of his duties, a judge said.
Lewis, 26, had sex with three while in uniform and tried to seduce a fourth, Exeter Crown Court had earlier been told. He was cleared of raping a pole dancer who said Lewis handcuffed her, forced her to have sex and told her not to make a complaint because “no one would believe a stripper”.
But Judge Graham Cottle told the ex-Avon and Somerset force PC that in reality what he did to the dancer was “little short” of rape. The judge added: “Your behaviour amounted to a flagrant breach of trust.” Lewis, of Nailsea, Somerset, who used cop files to access victims, admitted eight misconduct charges. Michael Fitton, QC, defending, apologised to his victims and ex-colleagues.
