He filmed his encounters with sex workers
A Wimbledon-based police officer has been sentenced after admitting charges of voyeurism after filming his encounters with sex workers.
Irshad Kamal, who worked as a PC at Wimbledon Police Station, admitted three counts of voyeurism when he appeared at Southwark Crown court on January 29.
When the 48-year-old appeared for sentencing on February 29 he received the following:
- A community order with a two year supervision requirement;
- 100hrs unpaid work; attending a sex offenders' group programme for 100 days;
- £750 court costs;
- £60 victim surcharge costs;
- A destruction order on computers and phones seized;
- A sexual harm prevention order;
- Placed on the sex offenders register for the next five years.
The offences occurred sometime between February 2010 and December 2012 and whilst he was off-duty.
The Met said in a statement that PC Kamal remains suspended, but now the criminal proceedings have been concluded they will complete a "misconduct process".
He had previously been cleared of sexually assaulting and stalking a prostitute after she put his details on a website which warns other sex workers about suspicious clients.
Kamal, who lives in Bramfield Road, Wandsworth, was suspended from duty at Wimbledon Police Station when he was charged with the first offences.
He was found not guilty of sexual assault on September 29, 2015, but the jury couldn't agree on the stalking charges. He was acquitted of those charges on January 22 when the prosecution failed to offer any evidence.
The court in January heard that officers found videos of Kamal having sex with the women when they searched his home.
