UK: Man cleared of rape after accuser sent messages saying ‘I’ll ring police tomorrow…it’s going to be so fun’

Article here. Excerpt:

'A TRAINEE accountant has been cleared of raping a student after she sent a Facebook message to friends telling them how she would call police before adding: "It's going to be so fun".

The 19-year-old claimed George Owen had forced himself on her as they left a bar in Bury, Greater Manchester.

She didn't tell police at first but almost a year later, she spotted the 21-year-old in a pub and called the cops.

The girl, who cannot be named, later told pals on Facebook: "OMG hahahahaha my mum knows. My mum started crying. She wants to hold my hand to go through it all with me. I was only raped chill the f*** out."

She added: "I'm going to ring them (police) tomorrow and tell them I'll do it. My mum wants to come so I'm going to ask whether I can do it while she's on holiday. It's going to be so fun."
...
He was cleared in just two hours and 14 minutes by a jury at Minshull Street Crown Court after the messages were read out.'
