Police investigator to stand trial accused of having relationships with two female victims

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.
