A policeman appeared before magistrates today accused of exposing his genitals to a female crime victim.
Detective Constable Jeffery Davies, 41, is also facing two separate charges of indecent assault.
Both charges relate to allegations that he sexually touched crime victims through their clothes on two occasions.
Davies is also accused of using police computers to research the background of a series of Facebook friends.
He was a South Wales Police officer based at Merthyr Tydfil police station at the time of the alleged offences.
He appeared at Llanelli Magistrates' Court today where the claims against him were set out publicly for the first time.
Magistrates also heard details of four counts of breaching the Data Protection Act 1998.
All four charges relate to the alleged abuse of position by using police computers to research friends on a social networking site.
Tony Williams, defending, said that Davies would "vehemently deny" all seven allegations.
Magistrates declined jurisdiction of the case and adjourned proceedings until 6 September for a committal hearing.
The case is then expected to be sent for trial to Swansea Crown Court.
