A Mountie charged for allegedly inviting other officers to a closed-circuit monitor to watch two drunk female inmates having sex in 2010 is expected to learn his fate today in a Kamloops, B.C., courtroom.

Cpl. Kenneth Brown, who was in charge of the Kamloops detachment the night of the Aug. 18 incident, has pleaded not guilty to a breach of trust charge.

One of the women later claimed to be a prostitute and said she was HIV positive, the Crown said. 

The Crown says Brown had a duty to stop the women, instead of objectifying them. 

His lawyer argued there were no RCMP guidelines stating what should be done when two prisoners start having sex.

Brown was the only RCMP officer to stand trial.

Last year, jail guard David Tompkins received a one-year probation after he pleaded guilty to breach of trust. Charges were also laid, but later stayed, against two other officers.
