A MAN who tricked young women into believing he was a police officer and then kidnapped them has been sentenced to four years imprisonment.

Lee Walker, 21, appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court last month and admitted five counts of impersonating a police officer and counts of kidnap and false imprisonment in October 2009.

Walker, of Rochford, who committed the offences in the Braintree and Witham area, was sentenced on Friday February 26.

His Hon Judge Christopher Ball said that Walker was a Jekyll and Hyde character.

Ds Kerry Hackett said: "Lee Walker's sentence reflects the danger he poses to young women and we are pleased that he has been sentenced to four years custodial and a further six years on licence.
