A police investigator had inappropriate relationships with two women he met while working on their cases, a court heard.
Alan Butler, 62, appeared at Warwick Crown Court on Friday (4/1) and denied two charges of misconduct in public office.
Butler, a police staff investigator with Warwickshire Police, has been involved in number of investigations including kidnapping, robbery and sexual offences.
The first charge alleges that Butler, of Nuneaton, Warks, engaged in a “personal relationship” with a woman between October 2015 and August 2017.
The court heard he was investigating a case in which the woman had made an allegation.
He is also accused of being in a relationship with another woman in a case he was investigating between March and August 2017.
Butler was bailed and ordered to return to court for trial in September.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
