Alex Hepburn: Cricketer guilty of raping sleeping woman

Alex Hepburn rape

The judge announced that a jail sentence was inevitable in the case as the pieces of evidence worked against Hepburn's claims.

The woman, in her statement, said that she was with Hepburn's roommate - Nottinghamshire batsman Joe Clarke - before waking up to find out that the former was straddling her, reported BBC.

"There is just a single sentence that can appropriately be passed on for this situation, and a custodial sentence is inescapable". But then Clarke left the bedroom after some time only to be joined by Hepburn who had drunk up to 20 bottles of beer.

Jurors deliberated for 10 hours and 53 minutes before returning the unanimous verdict on a count of oral rape.

Australian-born Hepburn, who came to the United Kingdom aged 17 to join Worcestershire CCC, told the jury the woman, who can not be named for legal reasons, had her eyes open and was "engaging" in the acts.

Alex Hepburn slumped into his seat, covered his face with his hands and sobbed after the verdict was returned by jurors at Worcester Crown Court in central England.

Hepburn will be condemned at Hereford crown court on 30 April.

'Historic' Winter Storm Wesley threatens 200M in the Midwest
Local media reported dozens of crashes and cars in ditches as several major highways and roads were shut down in parts of the U.S. But the April storm just missed Colorado's capital city and Twitter was filled with condemnations of meteorologists on Thursday.

Hepburn conceded he sent "nauseating, shocking and humiliating" WhatsApp messages while setting the principles of the sexual triumph competition.

"It would not be a kindness to you to leave you under any false impression as to the objective of that report. You need to prepare yourself and get matters in order and attend Hereford Crown Court on the 30th of April".

The judge likewise said that his temporary view was that decisions demonstrated that Hepburn's confidence in the lady's assent had been preposterous.

Worcestershire County Cricket Club (WCCC) said it was "appalled" by the details in the case, while the the Professional Cricketers' Association (PCA) said the case served as a "stark reminder" of the standards it expects.

Hepburn had denied both charges.

"WCCC continues to work alongside both the European Central Bank and PCA focusing on education, welfare and development programmes for all staff within the game".
