A constable was accused in sexual harass Melbourne
45-year-old Andrew John Tanner, a husband, a father and a constable of the Victoria Police, was convicted on five charges, including harassment and sexual involvement. His weird behavior made his neighbor to build a tall fence between their yards. Tanner could stand on the board of posessions naked.
His victim, who does not want to be identified, was afraid to report about the harassment, because Tanner was a policeman and thought, nobody would believe her. In 2018, Taskforce Salus launched an investigation into Tanner’s behavior by installing surveillance cameras in the victim’s house. As soon as the cameras were installed, they captured his actions. Despite obvious guilt, the constable retains his innocence, claiming that he thought he had received the consent of the victim.
The victim had to move our of her house, because she was afraid, her children could face Tanner as well. Now he doesn't work and receives remuneration. He will probably lose his job.
