A drunken teenager could end up on the Sex Offenders’ Register after he admitted squeezing a female police officer’s BOTTOM during a night out, a court heard.
Boozy Sam Peters, 19, grabbed her buttocks with both hands and ”squeezed hard and then laughed”.
She arrested him and took him to a police station, where he brazenly told cops: ”Girls do it to me all the time and I don’t cry about it.”
Peters admitted touching a woman in a sexual way without consent when he appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court on Monday.
The court heard Peters groped the officer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, at 2.30am on September 26.
He told the court he had downed more than 10 cans of lager and vodka and was ”paralytic”.
Sarah Stock, prosecuting, said the officer had just finished assisting colleagues who were dealing with an incident in Lowesmoor, Worcester.
As she returned to her patrol car a group of men and woman walk towards her.
Mrs Stock said: ”As they walked past, the defendant firmly grabbed her buttocks with both hands, squeezed hard and then laughed.”
She added that after he was arrested and interviewed by officers he told them: ”Girls do it to me all the time and I don’t cry about it.”
The court heard the female officer had been distressed by the incident because it had been witnessed by members of the public and her colleagues.
Paul Stanley, defending, said Peters did not understand how serious his actions had been, saying it was a ”high-spirited offence”.
He said: ”It was totally out of character.
”It was a high spirited offence which has caught him cold in relation to the Sexual Offences Act.”
Magistrates adjourned the case and bailed Peters ordering him to return on November 5 for sentencing.
Peters, from Tolladine, Worcester, was warned he faced a community order and would have to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register.
