LONDON (WTNH)– A case out of London is getting international attention after a millionaire was cleared of raping a teen, claiming he accidentally fell on her.
Property developer, Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of raping an 18-year-old woman who was asleep on his sofa in his London flat after a night out. The Independent reports that the victim says she woke up to Abdulaziz on top of her, forcing himself on her.
Abdulaziz had already had sex with the teen’s 24-year-old friend that night in the bedroom and says when he went to offer the teen a T-shirt or taxi cab, she pulled him on top of her. He claimed that he then accidentally fell on her.
“I’m fragile, I fell down but nothing ever happened,” he said, according to the Independent.
While his DNA was found inside her, Abdulaziz claims it was possible he had semen on his hands from earlier. The jury acquitted Abdulaziz of rape after 30 minutes of deliberations.
