A sex crimes detective has been found guilty of abusing his position by twice sexually touching a teen complainant without her consent but has been acquitted of raping her.

Glen Coleman was on trial accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman from March to May 2022 and abusing his position as an officer at Windsor Police Station.

He met the teenager at the station in February 2022 after she went in to make a complaint that her cousin had threatened to share naked images of her online.

During the trial at Penrith District Court, jurors heard the 57-year-old allegedly begged the woman for sex after he found out she had gone for an interview at a Sydney strip club.

Jurors heard he had texted the teen, asking her to send intimate naked images and requesting sex for money.

On Friday after about five hours of deliberations, the jury delivered its verdict finding that Coleman had sexually touched the woman without her consent once at a western Sydney park and again in an interview room at Windsor Police Station.

The officer has also been found guilty of abusing his position of public office to procure the woman for his own sexual gratification.

However, the jury acquitted Coleman of three counts of rape and four further counts of sexual touching without consent.

Coleman always contended that sex at in the interview room was consensual and denied had he touched the woman without her consent or free will.

He had his bail revoked after the verdict and will be held on remand until a sentence hearing on September 27.
