Policewoman Quits the Force after Having Sex with Victim of Sexual Abuse

A police officer has quit the force after having sex with a man who had suffered a series of sexual abuse.

The policewoman reportedly committed the act while on duty.

British Police Constable Andrea Griffiths, 44, was set to be sacked for gross misconduct for having a relationship with the “vulnerable” man in north Wales in 2015, Yahoo News had reported.

But she resigned on the morning of a misconduct hearing, saying she “deeply regrets” the fling with the unnamed man, who was a victim of historic sexual offences.

A panel heard PC Griffiths had sex with the man known as Mr X both on and off duty, but she claimed she only had sex with him once.

North Wales Police presenting officer Amy Clarke said: “She developed an inappropriate personal relationship with a vulnerable male who she was responsible for in 2015.

“Miss Griffiths was tasked with being liaison officer and engaged in sexual activity with him.

“She agreed further that sexual activity happened on duty.”

PC Griffiths, who joined the Police in 2001, admitted gross misconduct at the hearing at North Wales Police headquarters in Colwyn Bay.

A statement from PC Griffiths said: “I recognise I shouldn’t have had sexual contact with Mr X on June 29, 2015.

“I accept gross misconduct and deeply regret that it happened.

“To avoid further embarrassment to everyone, I have resigned forthwith from North Wales Police.”

Panel chair Susan Davies added: “PC Griffiths knew of Mr X’s personal and medical issues while she took part in that sexual activity, whilst on duty.

“We found that conduct so serious that dismissal would be justified and therefore amounts to gross misconduct.”
