If you can’t trust police officers, then what are we supposed to do?

“Women, especially models and sex workers, tend to struggle to report sex crimes to police.

“He knew we were potentially easy, quiet prey. Så, how can I tell women to trust police when this man has shaken my beliefs?”

Another model said: “The fact the defendant is a police officer has scared me and shocked me. He’s supposed to enforce the law, not break it.

“I expect he knows how to deal with people, and he’s used his knowledge, experience and training to manipulate me.

“He was so charming and believable in his role. I just ask myself what else was he capable of?”

A third woman, who went on a date with Corbel, said he came across as “genuine and charming”.

“The way Neil lied and completely made up a different life still sticks in my mind a lot," hun sa.

“A man with his intelligence would’ve known he could reach out for help rather than manipulate women for his own kicks.”

Other victims, who were not in court, mentioned the case of 33-year-old marketing executive Sarah Everard who was snatched off the street before being raped and murdered by Met Pc Wayne Couzens, 48.

“The fact that he is a policeman is a huge deal,” said one.

“These people are meant to protect us. Following the murder of Sarah Everard this feels like a very frightening time to be a woman.

Sex work can be dangerous, though I’m lucky in this is the first form of violence I have experienced at work.

“If you can’t trust police officers, then what are we supposed to do?”

En annen sa: “Finding out about this was a total shock to the system. I don’t want to point the finger at all police officers, but they are meant to be there to protect you.

“Especially with the Sarah Everard case, it is difficult to know who to trust. I don’t feel protected right now.

“I was oblivious to his wrongdoing and I imagine the other victims were.”
