Policeman jailed for sex offers to women drivers

Laura Harding in Cardiff

A traffic police officer who used his authority to ask women for sex while on duty has been jailed for three-and-a-half years.

Jamie Slater (33) offered to excuse driving offences if women agreed to meet up with him or give him their mobile numbers, Cardiff Crown Court heard.

He was convicted of misconduct while in public office.

The South Wales Police constable also used the force's database to retrieve personal details about his victims.

The prosecution said Slater sent goading text messages to the husband of one woman after getting his number from the police database.

He began sending texts taunting him, telling him he was sleeping with his wife.
