DES O'Connor's daughter has lost a battle against the Met Police over the "predatory" behaviour of a cop when she was mugged.
Kristina O'Connor was sent a string of messages by James Mason after he responded to the attempted robbery.
The detective branded her "amazingly hot" and asked her out for dinner while taking Kristina's statement.
A misconduct panel found Mason "deliberately and repeatedly abused his position for a sexual purpose" and that his actions amounted to gross misconduct.
He was handed a final written warning and later went on to work alongside former Met commissioner Dame Cressida Dick.
Kristina took the force to the High Court where her lawyer argued they "failed to properly investigate" the complaint.
A top judge today ruled rejected her challenges to police and misconduct panel decisions.
Her lawyers have indicated they are considering an appeal.
Kristina, whose comic dad Des passed away in 2020, had called police when she was attacked by a gang who attempted to steal her phone in London back in 2011.
She was interviewed by Mason, and says he asked "invasive" questions with "sexual overtones".

In one message, he said: "If you ever fancy having a drink with a very discreet police officer, just let me know, it would be my pleasure.
"If you have any visible injuries that you would like me to record then I am happy to take a picture for you and save it in case we manage to get any further in the investigation.
"I hope it doesn’t hurt too much and I am sure you still look amazingly hot.”
In a Met misconduct hearing in 2021, Mason was found to have breached the standards of professional behaviour on eight counts.
Despite this, he was issued with only a final written warning, which will last for three years, and was allowed to keep his rank.
Mason resigned from the force in November 2022.
