By Staff

A former Met Police officer has been sent to prison after repeatedly threatening and intimidating a woman. Isaque Rodrigues-Leite, who was based in the Roads and Transport Policing Command, was sentenced earlier yesterday (March 21) at Croydon Crown Court to two years and three months in prison.

He was previously convicted at the same court on November 10 last year of four counts of false imprisonment, two counts of assault, one count of coercive and controlling behaviour and one count of criminal damage. PC Rodrigues-Leite carried out the offences between 2016 and 2019 where he repeatedly used threats and intimidation against a woman.

The woman contacted police in September 2020 and he was arrested. Rodrigues-Leite was suspended from duty while the investigation took place and was sacked at a misconduct hearing held in December 2023.

Detective Superintendent Christina Jessah, from the Roads & Transport Policing Unit, said: “The nature of this officer’s offending was abhorrent. We do not want people who commit such offences working in the Met and our professional standards investigators will continue to be relentless in their pursuit of officers who let down their colleagues and Londoners.”
