The highly regarded policeman had been told earlier in the day by his supervisor at Traralgon to drive to Melbourne to undertake various administrative duties. Leading Senior Constable Steven Owen. Advertisement Prosecutor Vivianne Morkos said Owen, 45, made the appointment under a false name while driving from Traralgon and entered Harem about 1pm on March 5 after parking his marked police car nearby. Ms Morkos told the court he was in full uniform and wearing his police-issue equipment belt containing handgun, capsicum spray and baton.
Having paid, Owen was led by Pamela to room 1, where she told him the services would not start unless the gun was removed from the room. Ms Morkos said: "The prostitute advised Owen that there is a room in reception where the handgun could be locked away for the duration of the session. This prostitute waited for the receptionist to unlock the door to the storage room where the belt and gun - which had been unloaded by Owen - were put on the floor. Ms Morkos said later that the manager was shown the gun in the room next to the reception lounge and waiting room and which was exposed to clients.
Mr Walsh said Owen, embarrassed, ashamed and bewildered by his offending, had suddenly become a single parent of three children while "still trying to function normally as a police officer". Owen pleaded guilty to allowing an unlicensed person to carry a firearm and carrying a firearm in an unsafe manner.
Mr Reardon told Owen the vice in the offences was not that he was at Harem, but that he was on duty with a weapon that he gave away without knowing if it was stored properly. Mr Reardon said that although it appeared to friends and colleagues that Owen was acting normally, "inside you were not acting rationally".
Mr Reardon told him that "like most people, you are entitled to a chance in life to retain your good character".
