Eek! Goths!: June 2004 Archives

Rapist calls victim 'Pagan' to influence jury. Fails.

England: A rapist's cynical attempt to use bigotry to influence the jury failed, when Luke Weekes was convicted of an horrific attack on a 27-year-old woman.

Describing his victim as a Goth Pagan with vampiric overtones, he claimed she had not only seduced him, but insisted on the blood games that followed.

But the jury was having none of it, and unanimously convicted him of one charge of rape, two of indecent assault, and one each of unlawful imprisonment, causing actual bodily harm and outraging public decency.
