Metropolitan Police officer David Carrick has appeared in court charged with three more counts of rape, bringing the total charges against him to 44.

The 47-year-old constable already faced 41 charges involving 11 alleged victims, including rape, coercive and controlling behaviour and sexual assault between 2003 and 2020.

Carrick, who appeared in the dock at Westminster Magistrates’ Court wearing a suit and tie, and was flanked by four officers, spoke only to confirm his name and age.

He is charged with three counts of rape in Stevenage, Hertfordshire between January 1 2008 and December 31 2009.

The charges relate to one complainant, the 12th alleged complainant.

Chief magistrate Paul Goldspring remanded Carrick in custody until May 27 when he will appear at St Albans Crown Court on all 44 charges.

Mr Goldspring said: “Mr Carrick, you are here today because there are three new charges against you.

“I formally send all three to the court sitting at St Albans.

“You will appear there on May 27 to link up with the other charges.”

– 21 counts of rape

– five counts of assault by penetration

– three counts of coercive and controlling behaviour

– two counts of false imprisonment
