Officers’ Statement on Trevor and Quartey’s Relationship
According to the Prosecutor Sarah Lindop told the court that the relationship was discovered after Quartey was moved to HMP at Huntercombe, Oxfordshire and Officer Trevor attempted to visit him under a fake name.
One of the police officers working with Trevor, Ms. Lindop said: “She [Trevor] made a number of admissions, including that David Quartey was the father of her baby and that she also had belief she shouldn’t be a prison officer as she became too emotionally-involved with many prisoners.
“Trevor said they had s*x in his cell and she already thought about resigning but she didn’t want to be away from him. She admitted to being in regular contact with him and his family too and built up a good relationship with them.
The Detective Constable Nick Gossage, of the South East Regional Prison Intelligence Team counter corruption team, also said: ‘Trevor was employed to ensure safety and good order of prison she worked in.
‘Her behavior for a long period of time undermined this, putting her colleagues and prisoners at risk. Trevor’s conviction should serve as a reminder to those that hold positions of power and trust that it isn’t to be abused and that action will be taken against both if they act in this way.’
Trevor had also been nominated for awards by her bosses and had a great career until the affair was revealed.
