Man cleared of rape

First published in News

A Bradford man has been cleared of raping a young woman from Skipton who was in the city on a night out.

John Cawley, 31, of Hazelhurst Road, Daisy Hill, was found not guilty by a jury at Bradford Crown Court last week of oral rape in the early hours of August 19, 2010.

The woman claimed Cawley molested her in Croscombe Walk, Little Horton, while she was lost and alone, but Cawley said he met the woman that night and the sex act was consensual.
