Acquittal of Sixteen Year Old Boy Charged with Stranger Rape

The defendant was charged alongside another sixteen year old boy with the alleged rape of a sixteen year old girl in a car park.  Unusually in circumstances where the defendant and complainant are unknown to each other (as here), he maintained at trial that sexual activity had been consensual, despite the fact that the complainant had been drunk when she consented to sex. He was unanimously acquitted.

The defendant was represented by Jose Olivares-Chandler.
