Former policeman jailed after filming himself raping woman

 

A former special constable filmed himself raping a drunken woman who thought she was having sex with another man, a court heard.

Ex-special constable Paul Rodgers forced himself on the victim who was so drunk she thought she was having sex with a man she wanted to be her boyfriend.

Afterwards the “sex addict”, who visited swingers clubs, sent an edited version of the mobile phone footage to another person making it appear the sex had been consensual.

But on the unedited recording of the sex attack which was played in court the victim could be heard clearly saying the other man’s name.

During the video Rodgers could be heard telling her “No, it’s not, it’s me, Paul.” She replied: “No, no it’s not.”

The 29-year-old, of no fixed address, denied raping and sexually assaulting the woman, claiming she consented, but he was found guilty of both charges.

Leicester Crown Court heard Rodgers was formerly a special constable, but was dismissed in December 2016, by the Leicestershire force, for an unrelated matter.

Luke Blackburn, prosecuting, said the woman was “extremely vulnerable” on the night the attack took place at an address in Leicestershire.

The victim had been out with her friends in June 2016 and was very drunk.
