Paul Douglass secures conviction of Cocktail Bar rapist

The defendant, a 37-year-old male, lured an intoxicated female aged 25 into a cubicle in the men’s toilets in the B@1 cocktail bar in the Caledonian Road. During a 17-minute ordeal in the cubicle he forced her to perform oral sex on him, inserted his fingers in her vagina and attempted to rape her vaginally. The defendant claimed that the victim, whom he had not met until moments before he entered the men’s toilets with her, had not only consented to having sex with him, but had initiated it. After a 4-day trial at Wood Green Crown Court, the jury convicted the defendant unanimously on all 3 counts on the indictment.
