Police officer denies making inappropriate sexual remarks to complainant
A police officer has denied conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office after being accused of making inappropriate sexual remarks to a complainant.
Pc Colin Noble pleaded not guilty to the charge during a brief appearance at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday.
A single count brought against the 47-year-old officer alleges he used “highly sexualised language” between June 22 and August 24 last year.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) had previously said Noble was alleged to have neglected legitimate police work in an attempt to pursue a sexual relationship with a complainant.
The IOPC said it began its investigation following a referral from West Midlands Police in August 2017.
Noble, whose address cannot be published because of a court order, was granted unconditional bail until his trial at the same court on April 1.
