Officer sacked over fake internet dating profile that targeted ex-girlfriend

16 Aug 2010 5:55 AM | Anonymous

A SENIOR South Australian police officer has been sacked for helping set up a lurid internet dating profile that encouraged men to pursue his ex-girlfriend for sex.

Detective Sergeant Darren James Clohesy lost his job on Monday after failing to attend a police disciplinary hearing in response to his court conviction.

Police Commissioner Mal Hyde found Clohesy's offending to be serious and his behaviour unacceptable.

In a case before the Adelaide Magistrates Court last week, Clohesy was given an 18-month suspended sentence and ordered to perform 320 hours of community service work.

He was originally charged with stalking but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of offensive behaviour.

He also admitted to twice breaching his bail conditions and to improperly accessing the police computer system.

The charges related to his failed relationship with Tania Milsom, a fellow police officer, which ended in early 2009.

In her sentencing remarks, Chief Magistrate Elizabeth Bolton said Clohesy provided information that allowed a nasty, hurtful and malicious scheme to take place.

After being rejected by his girlfriend, Clohesy, the former anti-gang taskforce chief, had helped another woman set up a profile on an adult internet dating site.

It provided Ms Milsom's phone number and address and encouraged men to contact her for sex.

As a result, a number of men went to Ms Milsom's home with at least one knocking on her bedroom window.

It was Clohesy who provided his former girlfriend's details for the site, something central to the plot, the magistrate said.

Ms Bolton said the scheme had been designed to embarrass, frighten and degrade the woman who had rejected him.

After being sentenced, Clohesy was ordered to front a police disciplinary hearing to show cause why he should not be sacked.

"Mr Clohesy did not attend today's hearing, nor was he represented," police said in a statement.

"The commissioner determined Mr Clohesy's offending was of a serious nature and his behaviour unacceptable and incompatible with the service expected of a police officer."
