A FORMER detective specialising in rape and sex assault cases is to be prosecuted for allegedly faking police records.

Ryan Coleman Farrow will be charged with 13 counts of misconduct in a public office, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

The ex-detective constable “wilfully engaged in conduct amounting to an abuse of the public’s trust” while working for Scotland Yard’s specialist Sapphire unit, charges against him read.

Investigators for the police watchdog obtained a summons from Westminster Magistrates’ Court for the 30-year-old to appear in the dock on June 20.

The charges relate to investigations into allegations of rape and serious sexual offences between January 2007 and September 2010 while he was an officer at Kingston upon Thames and then under central command in London.
