An Old Bailey jury found PC Michael Graham, a Metropolitan Police officer based in Hounslow, west London, guilty of seven counts of rape and one count of sexual assault relating to the strangling of the victim, who lived in fear and was left ‘absolutely humiliated and disgusted’. Court was told the 49-year-old,from Poole, Dorset, raped the woman repeatedly over a nine-month period and on one occasion was recorded raping her on an iPhone app designed to tell people if they snore. Graham, who was suspended from the police following his arrest last October, is due to be sentenced later today by Judge Peter Rook QC. Graham, who denied the charges, used rape as punishment and would tie the woman’s hands with rope before he forced himself on her, the jury was told.
