Police constable jailed after targeting vulnerable domestic abuse victim

PC Jarrett Kinson from Staffordshire Police was sentenced to a term of eight months imprisonment after he admitted corrupt and improper exercise of police privileges.

The officer targeted a vulnerable woman by contacting and sending her explicit images on social media after she had reported domestic abuse.

He admitted a charge of corruption through abuse of his authority as a police constable.

The Deputy Chief Constable, Nick Baker of Staffordshire Police said:

‘Abuse of position for sexual gain by police officers or staff in any guise is never acceptable as it causes harm or distress to the very people we should be protecting and keeping safe.’ 

The officer remains suspended from his role with the police and will face internal disciplinary proceedings.
