Cop sent naked selfie to sex assault victim & said he wanted to handcuff her after being ‘aroused by her short skirt’ 0 39

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.

Rob Adams sent a naked selfie to a sex assault victim

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.” 

Adams has been banned from being a police officer ever again

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
