The Met Police has today sacked a police officer based with Kensigton and Chelsea borough.
PC Roberto Rossi, 38, was yesterday Monday, 14 December, formally dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service following a special case hearing.
The officer faced allegations that his conduct amounted to a breach of the standards of professional behaviour in respect of discreditable conduct.
On Tuesday, 25 August PC Rossi appeared at Oxford Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty to two counts of making an indecent photo/pseudo photograph of a child.
On Tuesday, 29 September he was sentenced at the same court to a two year community order with supervision, ordered to attend 20 sessions of an internet sex offenders programme and to pay £160 in court costs.
The chair found the allegations proven as gross misconduct.
