A senior Metropolitan Police officer has been found guilty of possessing an indecent image of a child.
Supt Novlett Robyn Williams was sent a “disturbing” video by her sister Jennifer Hodge last year, but failed to report her, a court heard.
Hodge, 56, and her partner Dido Massivi, from whom she had received the video, were both found guilty at the Old Bailey of distributing an indecent image of a child. All had denied the charges.
Williams also faced a charge of corrupt or improper exercise of police powers in failing to report the distribution of an image, but was cleared of this.
Massivi, 61, was found guilty of two counts of distributing indecent photos and guilty of possessing an extreme pornographic image.
Williams, 54, from south London, was one of 17 people sent the video by social worker Hodge, from Brent, in February 2018, the court heard.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Matthew Horne said the police watchdog the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) was carrying out an independent misconduct investigation into the actions of Supt Williams.
“Williams remains on restricted duties,” Scotland Yard said
