A mum who called police after fearing she'd been spiked at a friend's house exposed her breasts, dropped her trousers then sexually assaulted an officer - before spitting at another.

Sophie Nicole Cleary, 29, told cops 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 cops arrived, she appeared to be under the influence of drink or drugs.

By 9.30am, Cleary, from Oldham, was at her mum's house when she called police again.

She told them she had been sexually assaulted the night before having been at a pal's house for drinks. She said she feared she'd been spiked.

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 bottom against the officer. She also pressed her knee into the back of one of the officers.

Cops then left the house.

Later, Cleary was put in a police van, before being arrested when she started to kick the doors.

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

In mitigation, it was said Cleary has been diagnosed with various mental health conditions, which worsen when she is put under high levels of stress.

Her son's father has just been released from prison after a series of 'serious offences', 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.
