Pervert police officer’s ex-girlfriend demands forces take action against predators in their ranks after he secretly filmed himself in bed with women he met on Match.com
Jayson Lobo was jailed for three years in 2017 after being found guilty of 11 counts of voyeurism. He has since been released
An ex-girlfriend of a police officer who was jailed after secretly filming himself having sex with seven women has spoken for the first time to demand police take action against predators within their ranks.
La donna, who had a relationship with former British athletics champion Jayson Lobo before they broke up, did not know he had finally been held to account for his sick actions until after a friend informed her of his jailing.
‘At that point everything that had happened in our relationship made sense, because it exposed the true nature of his character,’ she told MailOnline on condition of anonymity.
‘I was looking for someone I could trust – and when you date a police officer you’d think that would be the case.
‘But it turned out that our whole relationship was based on his lies – he thought he could get away with everything and was untouchable.’
Lobo, 51, who won the British 800m title in 1998, met most of his victims on dating website Match.com and covertly recorded them on his mobile phone.
Nel 2017 he was jailed for three years after being found guilty by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court of 11 counts of voyeurism between December 2011 e marzo 2015 – when he was serving as a police constable with Lancashire Police.
La donna – who was not part of the court case – said she came forward to police who found she had also been filmed having sex without her knowledge.
‘The police were great – they investigated him and looked at all the photographs and videos on his phone and found evidence he had been filming me without my knowledge when we were having sex and taking photographs when I was unaware,’ disse la donna.
‘They told me about text messages where he was saying how he couldn’t get away and was working late and said he was actually out with other women all that time.
‘I showed me the entire relationship was a lie and he’d lied to me on so many occasions.’

The woman said charges were considered but it was decided that because Lobo had already been sentenced for similar offences a second case would not be brought.
Oggi, she told how Lobo came up with a series of cover stories while cheating with other women, including having to travel abroad for work.
Describing his predatory behaviour, disse la donna: ‘There were times when I would be out in town by myself and then suddenly he’d put his hand on my shoulder.
‘It was as if he was always watching you and could find you anywhere.’
She said she wanted to speak out about what had happened to her following marketing executive Sarah Everard’s kidnap, rape and murder at the hands of Wayne Couzens, a Met Diplomatic Protection officer.
‘It was so horrific what happened to her – this was yet another person who shouldn’t have been in his position.

‘I would never ever date a copper again. It’s not that I don’t think there are good policemen around – I just find it hard to trust the police or men at all.
‘The judge [Lobo] he was a danger to women. The terrible thing is there are people like him everywhere, in all walks of life.
‘It is a scandal that women still feel unsafe walking home alone – it’s something that we are taught from a very young age.
‘There needs to be more education for boys in schools about how to respect women – at the moment some men treat them as objects that they can abuse.’
Lobo’s trial heard how he was finally exposed when one of his victims found out he had a long-term partner during their relationship.
She had earlier caught him on one occasion filming her as they had sex but he had promised her he would delete it.
The woman thought that too could be a lie and decided to make a complaint to police.
Lobo, di Blackburn, was then arrested and had his phones seized which revealed the full extent of his offending.
condanna, Judge Neil Flewitt QC told him: ‘These women did not consent to being recorded.
‘After you had made those recordings you moved them to a secure vault on your mobile phone and in some cases you created still images from those recordings and also stored them.
‘I am entirely satisfied that your reasoning for doing so was for sexual gratification to create a library of personalised pornography.
‘That was a calculated and selfish course of conduct, pursued without regard for the feelings of those women concerned.’
The judge said the level of deceit required to commit the offences was ‘staggering’ as Lobo was in a relationship with another woman throughout and she had no idea he was using a dating website to meet others.
The judge said some of his victims fell in love with the defendant but the discovery of his true motives had left many of them ‘feeling betrayed and worthless’.
He added he was sure their knowledge he was a police officer had lulled the women into a false sense of security.
