[Ed. – Guilty till proven innocent.]
A British criminology student at London’s Greenwich University, whom local authorities dragged through hell after a fellow student accused him of rape and sexual assault two years ago, has been cleared of all charges.
The judge in student Liam Allan’s case threw out the charges against him last week after 40,000 text messages were discovered that showed his accuser “wanted and enjoyed the sex she later claimed was non-consensual,” according to the U.K. Independent.
The accuser reported Allan, 22, to local authorities in 2015, claiming he was an abusive boyfriend who forced her into engaging in sexual activity with him.
But as noted by Allan’s attorney, Julia Smart, “These messages said quite the contrary — that she was extremely happy for the defendant to come back to her after they broke up and extremely happy with the sex.”
The problem is, these messages almost never made it to the young undergrad’s trial, as local police reportedly refused to honor Smart’s request to see them.
“The messages had been obtained by police when they downloaded the contents of the woman’s phone, but investigators later told the lawyers they contained nothing relevant,” the Independent noted.
