A police officer accused of a sex attack on a fellow officer in a hotel room has been cleared of attempted rape.

Jurors at Lewes Crown Court decided Sussex Police constable Daniel Julian was not guilty of all three counts of sexual assault, causing a woman to engage in sexual activity without consent and attempted rape.

The 46-year-old denied the accusations, made after an encounter at a hotel in Kent with a fellow officer on August 17, 2021.

Julian, of Pulborough in West Sussex, was suspended from police duty when he was charged in April last year.

The trial started five days ago and Jurors heard from his accuser and Julian.

He denied bruising the woman, pinning her down or forcing her to engage in sexual activity with him.
