A drunk mother flashed her breasts and bottom at a police officer before sexually assaulted him and spitting in another constable’s face.
Sophie Nicole Cleary, 29, told officers she had been locked out of her home in Oldham, Greater Manchester, at around 6.30am in August last year and that she had been sexually assaulted.
She appeared to be under the influence of drink or drugs when police arrived, heard Minshull Crown Court. By 9.30am, Cleary was at her mother’s house when she called police again.
She told them she had been sexually assaulted the night before having been at a friend’s house for drinks. Cleary said she feared she’d been spiked.
When officers arrived, Cleary did not engage with them, choosing to stay on the phone to a 999 operator for over 40 minutes.
When she did come off the call, she exposed her breasts to the two officers, asking in reference to their body cameras: ‘Do you want me to show this to your camera?’

Cleary called the officers ‘b******s’ before dropping her trousers and exposing her backside.
She then pressed her bare bottom against the officer. She also pressed her knee into the back of one of the officers. Police then left the house.
Later, Cleary was put in a police van and arrested when she started to kick the doors.
She spat at one of the officers during a period when Oldham was experiencing high rates of Covid-19, the court heard.
In mitigation, it was said Cleary has been diagnosed with various mental health conditions, which worsen when she is put under high levels of stress.
Her son’s father has just been released from prison after a series of ‘serious offences’, the judge heard.
Cleary is also a carer for her mother, who has various physical medical conditions.
Judge Mary Prior QC said: ‘All that we know is that on August 15, you called the police in distress because you believed you had been assaulted.
The mother, pictured outside court, was made the subject of an 18-month community order, ordered to undertake a 30-day rehabilitation programme and handed a night-time curfew
‘We have no idea of whether that is because you received a drug you did not intend to take or because of the drink.
‘You concede that you dealt with this in a bad way. You behaved aggressively. When they were trying to help you, you spat in one of their faces.
‘That is a disgusting thing to do.’
Cleary, of Oldham, pleaded guilty to sexual assault and two counts of assaulting an emergency service worker.
She was made the subject of an 18-month community order, ordered to undertake a 30-day rehabilitation programme and handed a night-time curfew.
