A drunk mum who exposed her breasts and bottom to a police officer before sexually assaulting him and spitting on his colleague during a callout has been spared jail.

Sophie Nicole Cleary, 29, dialled 999 saying she'd been locked out of her home and that she had been sexually assaulted herself at around 6.30am in August last year.

Minshull Street Crown Court heard that when police arrived, she appeared to be under the influence of drink or drugs.

By 9.30am she was at her mum's and rang cops again, saying she herself had been sexually assaulted while at a friend's house for drinks the night before.

She said she feared she'd been spiked during the callout in Oldham, Manchester, reports Manchester Evening News.

Cleary was handed an 18-month community order today

When officers arrived, Cleary did not engage with them, choosing to stay on the phone to a 999 operator for over 40 minutes.

When she did come off the call, she exposed her breasts to the two officers, asking, in reference to their body cameras: "Do you want me to show this to your camera?"

Cleary called the officers 'b******s', before dropping her trousers and exposing her backside.

She then pressed her bare buttocks against the officer. She also pressed her knee into the back of one of the officers.

Police swiftly left the house before putting Cleary in a police van and arresting her when she started to kick the doors.

She spat in the face of one of the officers – during a period when Oldham was experiencing high rates of Covid-19, the court heard.

Passing sentence, a judge branded the spitting "disgusting" but heard mitigation that she had been diagnosed with various mental health conditions.

Her son's father has just been released from prison after a series of 'serious offences' which had worsened her mental health due to the stress, the judge heard.

Cleary is also a carer for her mother, who has various physical medical conditions.

Judge Mary Prior QC said: "All that we know is that on August 15, you called the police in distress because you believed you had been assaulted.

"We have no idea of whether that is because you received a drug you did not intend to take or because of the drink.

"You concede that you dealt with this in a bad way. You behaved aggressively.

"When they were trying to help you, you spat in one of their faces. That is a disgusting thing to do."

Cleary, of Conrad Close, Oldham, pleaded guilty to sexual assault; and two counts of assaulting an emergency service worker.

She was made the subject of an 18-month community order; ordered to undertake a 30-day rehabilitation programme; and handed a night time curfew.
