The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Hertfordshire Constabulary to charge Metropolitan Police officer David Carrick with 13 additional offences.

They relate to three women and are alleged to have taken place between 2017 and 2020.

In relation to Complainant A, Mr Carrick is charged with two counts of rape, one count of coercive and controlling behaviour, one count of false imprisonment, one count of sexual assault, one count of assault by penetration and one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.

In relation to Complainant B, Mr Carrick is charged with one count of assault by penetration, one count of sexual assault and one count of attempted sexual assault by penetration.

In relation to Complainant C, Mr Carrick is charged with one count of rape, one count of sexual assault and one count of coercive and controlling behaviour.

This is in addition to one count of rape he was charged with last month following a complaint by a separate woman.

The defendant, 46, will make his first court appearance in relation to the new charges at via videolink at 2pm on Friday (26 November) at Westminster Magistrates' Court. He is currently remanded in custody.

Peter Burt, Senior District Crown Prosecutor for CPS Thames and Chiltern, said: “Following a referral of evidence by Hertfordshire Constabulary, the CPS has now charged David Carrick with a total of 14 alleged offences against four women. 

"We remind all concerned that criminal proceedings against the defendant are active and that he has the right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings."
