A Met police officer is facing life in prison after he spiked a woman’s drink and then raped her violently in Antigua.
Police constable Lee Martin-Cramp made use of his job post in order to win the woman’s trust before raping her while the two were on holiday at the island back in the year 2015.
A jury at High Court in Antigua convicted Martin-Cramp after he was extradited to Antigua in what’s said to be a legal first.
It is expected that the 26-year-old would be sentenced at a later date of 11 July.
Martin-Cramp, who served as a cop in the Metropolitan’s Merton borough, presently is suspended from performing his duties. He was extradited to the island last September to face court proceedings.
According to Commander Catherine Roper, directorate of professional standards of the Met, the officer is found guilty of raping the women in Antigua. The evidence shown in the trial included disturbing information of how the woman trusted him as he was a cop and how he went ahead and used that trust as an advantage in a deplorable way, she added.
Notably, the Met’s Extradition department arrested Martin-Cramp over rape charges back in June 2016.
