A former police officer has pleaded guilty to misconduct in public office after admitting having sexual relationships with two victims of crime.

Simon Jones, aged 32, who was serving at Worksop police station at the time of his offending and now lives in South Wales, admitted the two offences at Nottingham Crown Court.

He had sexual relationships with two vulnerable victims of crime and also had sex while on duty on one occasion.

Jones, who had already resigned from Nottinghamshire Police following his arrest earlier this year, is to be sentenced on Friday.

Assistant Chief Constable Sue Fish said: “Simon Jones’ conduct while he was a serving police officer was not just reprehensible but criminal, and it is right that he should have been brought before the court to answer the charges of misconduct in a public office.

Police officers have a huge responsibility in protecting the vulnerable and upholding the law, and in both of these respects Simon Jones was found wanting.”

He abused the trust that the public places in the police force.”

People should rightly expect police officers to exhibit the highest standards of professionalism and integrity at all times.”
