METROPOLITAN POLICE officer David Carrick appeared in court today charged with three more counts of rape, bringing the total number of charges against him to 44.
The 47-year-old constable already faced charges including rape, coercive and controlling behaviour involving 11 alleged victims between 2003 and 2020.
He was charged today with three counts of rape in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, between January 1 2008 and December 31 2009.
At Westminster magistrates’ court, chief magistrate Paul Goldspring remanded Mr Carrick in custody until May 27, when he will appear at St Albans Crown Court on all 44 charges.
He shook his head as he was led out of the dock by officers.
Mr Carrick, who was arrested by Hertfordshire Constabulary in October and suspended by the Met, was previously attached to the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command.
Charges against him include 21 counts of rape, nine counts of sexual assault, five counts of assault by penetration, three counts of coercive and controlling behaviour and two counts of false imprisonment.
