Gloucester: Police Officer Faces Misconduct Charges
A Gloucestershire police officer is due in court to face misconduct in public office charges.
Darren Stephen Heath, 44 and of Taynton, Gloucester, will appear at Bristol Crown Court on Tuesday for a plea and case management hearing.
The charges relate to several cases in which Mr Heath is alleged to have made inappropriate advances or formed sexual relationships with vulnerable women he met through his duties.
The alleged offences are due to have taken place between 2002 and 2012.
Gloucestershire Constabulary's Professional Standards Department began an investigation into a complaint against PC Heath in 2012 and he was suspended from all duties in early 2014, pending the outcome of the criminal investigation by the Constabulary’s Anti-Corruption Unit.
