Former Met police detective jailed for misconduct

29/10/2012

Ryan Coleman-Farrow was today jailed for 16 months after pleading guilty to 13 counts of misconduct in public office at Southwark Crown Court last month.

Rosemary Fernandes, Crown Advocate for special crime at CPS, said: "Over a period of nearly three years, Coleman-Farrow failed to interview alleged victims and suspects, failed to secure forensic analysis, failed to secure CCTV evidence and ultimately failed in his duty to investigate serious allegations of rape and sexual assault.

"He also fabricated CPS decisions on such allegations which were never in fact referred to the CPS. Victims of crime should have confidence that their allegations will be properly considered by the police and, where appropriate, that the evidence will be reviewed by the CPS for potential prosecution. Coleman-Farrow stood in the way of justice being done."
