Clubber is cleared of railway station rape
7:00am Tuesday 25th February 2014 in News
A CLUBBER accused of raping a man with learning difficulties at Oxford Railway Station has been cleared of all the charges against him.
Daniel Allen, of Fleetham Gardens, Reading, was found not guilty yesterday following a week-long trial at Oxford Crown Court.
The 20-year-old was charged with committing two counts of rape and two counts of causing someone to engage in sexual activity without their consent on February 10 last year.
But a jury yesterday returned not guilty verdicts on all four counts.
Ahmed Hossain, prosecuting, said the 24-year-old man has the mental age of “a very young child”.
Mr Hossain said that Allen did not deny having sex with the complainant, but said it was consensual.
The defendant had been drinking in the nearby Plush Lounge and was very drunk when the incident took place.
