Abused by the Police?

Abused by the Police? (BBC Three)

Ellie Flynn investigates the increasing number of claims that some law enforcement officers have used their position of power to assault women in their custody. It’s claimed a serving police officer in the USA is arrested for a sex crime every 35 hours.

Following the on-going high profile case of teenager Anna Chambers, who alleges she was raped by two NYPD cops while under arrest in 2017, Ellie explores the true scale of sexual misconduct cases against police officers across the US, and discovers the legal loophole in some state laws which may allow officers to escape sexual assault charges, claiming that sex acts were consensual.
