Policeman sexually abuses 15-year-old rape victim

A Metropolitan Police officer who had sex with a 15-year-old rape victim he met online has been dismissed from the force and jailed.

26-year-old James Evans, was sentenced to four years in jail in August and he will be on the sex offenders’ register for life.

Court heard how the ‘vulnerable’ girl performed a sex act in Evans’ car while he drove her home from a session with child mental health services.

He later had intercourse with her at his Ruislip flat after they matched on dating app, Tinder, in January this year.

Although the girl told Evans she was 16, he said he knew she was 15 years old and still at school.

she said, “I now know he took full advantage of my vulnerabilities.

“I told James I had been sexually assaulted the previous August and now I know he should have acted differently as a police officer,” Metro UK reported.

The report also says the girls mother discovered the relationship after reading her daughter’s diary and finding pictures of Evans in police uniform and reported to the authorities.

Assistant Commissioner Helen King said, “PC Evans exploited a girl he knew to be vulnerable and, as she knew he was a serving police officer, abused his position.

“Sexual exploitation of young people, particularly by those in positions of power and influence, has long been very seriously under reported.

“For a police officer to commit such offences is inevitably going to have a serious detrimental impact on the confidence of victims and the wider public to report concerns.

“PC Evans has undermined the work of colleagues to build that trust. Critically he has victimised a young girl and broken the laws he was entrusted to enforce on others.

“The only outcome in this case is for him to be dismissed without notice.”
