Ronald John Tarlington, 49, a sergeant who has been a police officer for 25 years, was charged in March with sexual touching without consent after the incident at a pub at The Rocks on December 5, 2018. He pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors told a Local Court hearing that the woman was shown on CCTV sitting on Tarlington's lap about 10pm before he reached into her jacket with his right hand. The woman then abruptly stood up and moved away.

7-year-old Texas girl sworn in as honorary police officer dies after battle with cancer

  7-year-old Texas girl sworn in as honorary police officer dies after battle with cancer According to ABC13, the seven-year-old had wanted to become a police officer. Freeport police said that she was known as “Officer Arias 758.” She had a custom-made police officer’s uniform made for her February swearing-in ceremony, where she had to stand on a step ladder to take the oath. Her story made headlines around the world, including at the BBC, Global News, and CNN.“Her love, compassion, and most importantly, her magnanimous spirit, will live on for generations to come,” the Freeport police Facebook post read.

Inspector David El-Badawi, the officer in charge of the case, said he obtained the CCTV in the days after the incident and met with the complainant and other witnesses to get statements. He said he also obtained four hours of CCTV footage from the Christmas party , where Mr Tarlington and the woman

A third officer , described by Mr Siamandi as the policeman who shot and killed the assailant, came out on his knees, also in tears. 'People were running everywhere, there was crying everywhere,' said Mr Siamandi, an interpreter who was in the building when the attack happened.

On Tuesday, magistrate Paul Mulroney said he had studied this vision closely and was satisfied Tarlington touched his colleague "squarely on the breast area".

"In my view there can be no mistake as to where the hand was in relation to the body," Mr Mulroney said.

The woman told the court that Tarlington squeezed her nipple, growled and had a crooked smile on his face.

She told several colleagues immediately afterwards and demonstrated the touch to a male colleague, then left with that colleague to contact her superior.

Mr Mulroney said the woman's "immediate reaction" to get up and move away was suggested during the hearing to be consistent with her spilling a drink, but on his view of the footage "that is not a reasonable explanation of what took place".

She said he grabbed her breasts , then pulled down her pink shorts and raped her. Her DNA was found on his uniform trousers. Defense attorney Scott Adams, who declined to comment after the verdicts, sought to use the criminal backgrounds of some of the victims to cast doubt on their testimony.

He said the vision showed the woman briefly dancing shortly after the incident, but within about a minute her body language changed.

"Her initially happy demeanour changes to being a fairly serious and upset demeanour," Mr Mulroney said.

He said the woman was moderately intoxicated and "touchy-feely" on that night and could be seen hugging Tarlington, kissing him on the cheek and playing with his clothing before the unwanted sexual touch.

The magistrate said the woman's evidence was "in many regards ... unreliable and inaccurate" because it contradicted what was shown on CCTV, and he would not have been satisfied beyond reasonable doubt on her evidence alone.

But he said the woman complained to four people that night while the incident was "very fresh in her memory", telling one: "Tarlo touched me ... he grabbed my boob and had my nipple in his fingers."

"In my view it is not reasonable to find that her complaint made to various colleagues was the result of a mistake, possibly caused by intoxication," Mr Mulroney said.

He said there was also no evidence to conclude that Tarlington touched the woman's breast by mistake.

The magistrate acknowledged that Tarlington was a long-standing police officer, so it had to be assumed he would be unlikely to commit an offence, and any evidence had to be examined "very carefully".

He said "having done that", he was satisfied that Tarlington intentionally touched the woman on the breast and squeezed her nipple for a sexual purpose.

"I am satisfied the prosecution has proved the offence beyond reasonable doubt," Mr Mulroney said.

After the magistrate delivered his decision, Tarlington ran his hand over his face. The court was previously told he was suspended as a result of the court proceedings.

Tarlington will be sentenced in February.
