An embarrassed builder has apologised after secretly taking a picture of an officer at Sleaford police station, digitally altering the image to make it obscene and then posting it on Facebook.

Jordan Barrack of Millview Road, Ruskington, took the image on his mobile phone while he was being interviewed by an unsuspecting PC Charles Harris.

He later used the mobile app Snapchat to draw two penises on the image, including one on the officer’s head.

He then sent it to some of his friends before posting it on his Facebook page, which can be seen by more than 1,700 people.

At Lincoln Magistrates’ Court today, Barrack pleaded guilty to posting a grossly offensive, obscene picture on a social media site.

Prosecuting Daniel Pietryka told the Court: “On August 21 at Sleaford Police station he posted a picture on Snapchat and Facebook of PC Harris who had been interviewing Barrack at the station.

“Without the officers knowledge he took a photo and adapted the image by drawing two penises on the officers’ face.

“The image was visible on his Facebook profile and had been seen on Snapchat.”

Barrack was not represented by anyone and told the court: “I am terribly sorry and it was a massive mistake and I shouldn’t have done it.

“Please send my apologies to the officer if I was to see them again I would apologise to them.”

The 20-year-old builder who lives at home with his parents has to pay £400 in compensation to the police officer.

He was ordered to serve a 12 month community order with 40 hours of unpaid work.

Barrack also has to pay £85 of costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Addressing the bench Barrack admitted to the bench: "It was a very expensive photograph and I won't do it again."

    Police Constable Charles Harris stated he was just jealous over the huge genitalia drawn near his face, and was embarrassed due to his 2" weenis. Poor thing.

    Your latest post reveals the falsehood in your first since the policeman accused was prosecuted for manslaughter and found not guilty. It is also irrelevant since Ian Tomlinson wasn't in custody at the time he was struck. Coroners can make mistakes the same as everyone else; what I trust is their integrity in that if they believe a death to be due to unlawful killing they will say so. No, I'm not a Police Officer nor would I condone their beating the **** out of people any more than I condone people beating the **** out of the 'pigs'. I can't say I'm familiar with the cells but I've seen people attack police officers several times and on every occasion the police have shown remarkable restraint in the face of the most extreme provocation. Are you a criminal?

    Did you trust the first coroner in the murder of Ian Tomlinson? As regards police custody, there is a duty of care, not an excuse for the Pigs to beat the **** out of people. Your comparison with supermarkets is asinine. Are you a Police Officer?

    markbudgen - your logic is flawed; 333 die in police custody in 20 year period and no policemen prosecuted is suspicious but if I tell you that 918 died supermarkets over the same period but no supermarket managers were charged either would you find that suspicious? Cause of death is recorded by a coroner and I trust their integrity - if it was an unlawful killing they would say so, the police are in no position to cover it up.

    So hundreds of deaths in custody yet the Police committed not one crime to cause just one of those deaths? I bet you believe everything your government tells you......... One law for us, another law for the old bill.

    markbudgen - perhaps that's because they never committed any crime....... I can't really see the link to your problem from this story.

    100s of deaths in police custody in 20 years yet not one prosecution for a copper.
