Gregory Perrins successfully prosecutes police officer for misconduct

5 January 2016

Gregory Perrins recently concluded a case at Luton Crown Court which attracted much national press interest. The defendant, a Police Officer trained to help victims of domestic violence, targeted vulnerable women after they contacted the Police for help. The court heard he had had a full sexual relationship with two women, including one who gave birth to his child, and he had actively pursued three more, hoping to have sex with them. Mr Perrins told the court the defendant was "opportunistic and saw every encounter with a young vulnerable woman as an opportunity for sex.”

The defendant Simon Salway, 39, was convicted of six charges of misconduct in a public office in relation to five different women. He was acquitted of a seventh misconduct charge involving another woman. He was jailed for three years.
