UK: Grad student cleared of rape in changed-mind case
Article here. Excerpt:
'A graduate wept as he was cleared of raping a university student who 'changed her mind' during a drunken one-night stand.
Lewis Tappenden, 24, was 'pulled' by the 18-year-old first year on a night out and taken back to her student accommodation for sex.
But the York St John University scholar changed her mind halfway through and later accused him of rape, a court heard.
A jury took less than two hours to clear Mr Tappenden after a five day trial at York Crown Court, and the ordeal left him 'feeling suicidal'.
Outside court his father Rob Tappenden, 51, said: 'We are not happy, it's not a celebration, it's not a victory.
'We have not won anything. We have lost 18 months of our lives really. I never doubted Lewis, but we've had this cloud over us.'
