#AceNewsReport – July.14: Former PC Martin-Cramp, who was previously attached to Merton borough, was arrested in June 2016 by the Met’s Extradition Unit after an allegation of rape was made: The allegation, reported in June 2015, related to an offence committed against a woman in Antigua in May 2015: PC Martin-Cramp was extradited to Antiqua in September 2018, after an extradition request from the Antiguan authorities was granted on 28 June 2018 at Westminster Magistrates’ Court: He will serve his sentence in Antigua: A Special Case Hearing conducted by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) in June found the allegations that that PC Martin-Cramp’s conduct amounted to a breach of the standards of professional behaviour in respect of discreditable conduct and honesty and integrity were proven and he was dismissed without notice.

Commander Catherine Roper, Professional Standards, said: “Former PC Martin-Cramp has been sentenced for an extremely serious offence: “The evidence given during the trial included distressing details of how the victim trusted him because he was a police officer, and how he took advantage of that trust in the most deplorable way: “The officer’s actions fell well below that of any decent person, but particularly a person whose job is to protect people and keep them safe.”
