A fake police officer who stopped a woman from driving a luxury car and asked for ‘four thousand’ and a sexual favor has been in prison for 32 months.
Jimmy Cash, 28, of Christchurch, Dorset, in October last year in Whitchurch, Shropshire, admitted to blackmail, false incarceration and impersonation of a police officer.
Dressed in black, Cash pretended to be part of the “drug team” and threatened the woman, whom he did not know, with a speeding ban and offered her the option of performing a sexual act instead.
Defense QC James Scobie told Caernarfon Crown Court, “This isn’t someone who was anything but a chancer who clearly hasn’t thought about this thing at all.”

He was short of money and not a sex offender, the QC emphasized.
Cash had lost respect within the traveling community. The lawyer added, “This was a one-off.”
Prosecutor Brian Treadwell said the victim saw a hired black Audi arriving close behind her at Bronington on the Wales-England border and the headlights had been flashed three times.
The Audi then caught up with her and Cash motioned to the woman to hold off the A495.
She pulled into a parking garage, believing the man inside was an undercover cop, The sun reports.
The black-clad defendant pretended to belong to the “drug squad” and threatened the woman, who did not know him, with a speeding ban.

The victim said he had been “very convincing” until he offered her the opportunity to perform a sexual act instead.
Mr Treadwell said the victim felt trapped in her car with cash.
She drove him to Whitchurch for 20 minutes and stopped by warning Cash that she had five minutes to get the money or she wouldn’t walk again.
The victim began an audio recording on her phone after realizing he was not who he claimed to be.
The court heard that Cash said he would ‘let the woman go home to wash’ if she performed the sex act.
The woman went to a cafe and asked the staff to call the police. Cash surrendered for questioning by the police later that same month.

Judge Rhys Rowlands said, “This was a truly terrifying ordeal for the victim. The effect on her has been enormous. ‘
He said Cash assaulted a vulnerable woman in her car and demanded money and sexual favors.
“She didn’t know you weren’t interested in sexual favors,” Judge Rowlands told him.
“Women like the victim have a right to be out and about, safe from harm and targeted by men like you.”
Cash, which appeared via video link from HMP Berwyn, was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison.
