Sex-attack police officer jailed
A police officer who preyed on two domestic violence victims to get his sexual kicks has been jailed for three years.
Jeffrey Howard Davies was a family liaison officer with South Wales Police when he touched a distressed woman and tried to get another to touch his groin.
The women say they now live in fear of the police - with one suffering panic attacks following her ordeal.
Swansea Crown Court judge Paul Thomas told the disgraced 42-year-old former officer he should expect a tough time in prison.
"The sexual assaults you perpetrated on these women were a gross betrayal of your position as a police officer.
"When a serving police officer behaves in the way you did, it has a huge impact on the way the public view the police. It makes the task the police face even harder than it already is.
"It is true, that no one despises a rogue policeman more than his former colleagues.
"You took advantage and preyed upon vulnerable women for your own sexual ends. You targeted them as you viewed them as women who would obviously not have the confidence to complain or be believed if they did.
"Even if these women had agreed to have sexual relations with you, it still would have been a serious matter. You have not showed even a scintilla of remorse.
"Prison will prove difficult due to your status as a former police officer, but my ultimate duty is to redress the public's confidence in the integrity of the legal system."
