The Metropolitan Police Officer denied 20 charges against four women including sexual assault and rape.

The 46-year-old PC David Carrick from Stevenage in Hertfordshire made almost twenty not guilty pleas when he appeared at St Albans Crown Court Friday.

As he was appearing via videolink from Belmarsh prison, south-east London, the suspended officer (part of Met’s Parliamentary Diplomatic Protection Command) wore a dark suit and a brown tie.  

In October, he was charged with first raping a woman that he met through Tinder in August.

Following his first appearance in court, three additional women presented themselves and he faced 19 more charges. They were for allegedly being committed between January 1, 2017, and July 1, 2020.

Six additional counts are added for rape. Five more charges of sexual violence, two sexual assault by means of penetration, two coercive or controlling behavior, two sexual assaults by force, two sexual assault by means of penetration, two sexual assault by way of consent, and two other sexual offenses.
