PC acquitted over misconduct in public office offences

A serving police officer has been found not guilty of seven counts of misconduct in a public office.

Chris Young, who is 47, was most recently based as a response officer at Hucknall, in Nottinghamshire, but had previously worked at Worksop. He was acquitted following a three-week trial at Derby Crown Court.

It related to seven separate and unconnected allegations of a sexual nature between 2003 and 2012. A police spokesperson said:

“In conjunction with the Crown Prosecution Service, a case was put before a jury who today have found PC Chris Young not guilty of misconduct in a public office. The verdict is a matter for the jury on which it would be inappropriate to comment. The internal conduct process in respect of the allegations against PC Young is yet to be concluded.”
