Staffordshire policeman charged over sex-on-duty claims

A police officer who is alleged to have engaged in sexual acts with women while on duty has been charged with misconduct in a public office.

Staffordshire PC Adam Rushton, 36, also faces three charges of obtaining personal data without consent.

The misconduct charges relate to four occasions between 2007 and 2012, when PC Rushton was serving at Longton police station.

He will appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on 13 May.

The charges follow an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission, which was brought in on the case by Staffordshire Police last year.
