A Brit police officer has been accused of having sex with three different women while on duty.
PC Adam Hoyle, who is set to go on trial at Liverpool Crown Court over abusing his position next year, is facing four charges of misconduct, the Liverpool Echo reports.
The Merseyside Police officer is accused of becoming involved in an inappropriate relationship with a woman, and then had sex with her while on duty.
Another charge relates to 39-year-old PC Hoyle kissing a third woman while trying to have sex with her during a shift at the Lower Lane Police Station.
There are also computer misuse offences, which allegedly took place between June 20 and November 18, 2019.
The charges span seven years, from May 26, 2012 to May 31, 2019.
He appeared at Liverpool Magistrates' Court earlier today (November 29), and will appear at Crown Court on January 4, having been released on unconditional bail.
