Royal protection officer accused of sending inappropriate texts to minor girl
A police officer assigned to protect Britain's royal family is not contesting allegations that he acted improperly by sending suggestive text messages to a teenage girl visiting a Buckingham Palace event.
Royal protection officer Andrew Daly is accused of asking a 16-year-old girl outside a garden party hosted by Queen Elizabeth II in May 2016 for her phone number and then sending her inappropriate texts.
Daly did not attend a police misconduct hearing Tuesday.
She says she was "disgusted" when he later sent her texts including one asking if she was a virgin.
