A British civilian police worker who seduced a corrections officer in order to identify a protected witness in her boyfriend’s murder trial has been sentenced to half a decade in jail.
33-year-old Lydia Lauro reportedly seduced 36-year-old police detention officer Hayden Cheremeh with sexual favors to use his log-in credentials to access the police intelligence system, resulting in her gaining details of a protected anonymous witness who helped put her lover -convicted shooter/killer Leon De St. Aubin- behind bars.
Judge Anthony Morris said Lauro also used the database to lookup the details detainees at Hammersmith Police Station “in order to find sexual partners.” During her time in the database, she looked up over 150 confidential reports.
Lauro sent screenshots of possible witness identities to Diana Lank, the mother of Aubin’s co-conspirator, Rupert Ross. The wealthy business woman masterminded the entire plot after Ross and Aubin were sentenced to 30 years for a grisly murder in 2011.
According to the Evening Standard, both Cheremeh and Lauro were sentenced on Friday to five years each for their misconduct. Lank was cleared of all charges after the jury failed to agree on a verdict.
