PC Notley broke down in tears today as she was jailed for four months for falsely claiming that prosecutors had dropped a rape case.
PC Hannah Notley told the alleged victim, as well as her superiors, that the Crown Prosecution Service had decided not to pursue the case, when she had never passed the file to them in the first place.
Notley, who had taken on detective duties working as a sexual offences-trained officer at Essex Police CID, was jailed at Southwark Crown Court, after previously pleading guilty to a charge of misconduct in public office between July 6 2011 and April 21 2012.
