out a fantasy”.
Jane Miller QC told Mr Olwage during his sentencing hearing that:
“You were expected to uphold the law but by trying to take
advantage of a child, albeit a fictional one, you showed a disregard
for the public trust you swore to uphold when joining the
were once a highly regarded police officer with undeniably a vast
amount of experience, now you are disavowed by the Met and further
disowned by your family as a would be pedophile”.
