London is hub of police sexual misconduct

A London police officer has been charged with seven counts of rape alleged to have occurred between December 24, 2013 and September 2, 2014.

According to the Guardian, the 47-year-old man was arrested off duty at his home earlier this month.

Scotland Yard has already announced that PC Michael Graham will be suspended.

He is said to have been off duty when the alleged sexual assaults were committed.
