A police officer appeared in court yesterday to deny having sex with a woman during a 999 call to her home.
PC Jordan Masterson, 26, is accused of misconduct in public office.
He was said to be on duty when he was called to a property in Hale Village, Cheshire, an area popular with Premier League footballers.
However, he pleaded not guilty to an allegation that he had sex with the homeowner during the emergency call-out on December 28, 2021.
Masterson was charged last month following an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
“He is accused of abusing his position for sexual purposes,” said Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division.
Masterson appeared in court for the first time before Warrington magistrates last month, after his case was referred to Chester crown court.
During a ten-minute appearance at Manchester Crown Court yesterday, he entered his not guilty plea.
Masterson was granted bail and will stand trial in January of next year.
He resigned from the Cheshire police force in June, but will face disciplinary proceedings once the criminal case is resolved.
