FORMER Mansfield police officer Russell Dew has been jailed for six years for carrying out sex offences against a 13-year-old girl.
The 44-year-old, who was based at the town’s police station, was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday afternoon.
He admitted five counts of sexual activity with a child at a hearing last month.
Dew was suspended by Nottinghamshire Police when the offences came to light and he resigned from the force on 18th August.
