A 27-year-old man named Thomas Atkinson is on trial for allegedly raping a woman who was intoxicated at the time. The prosecution claims that Atkinson took advantage of the woman’s incapacitated state and engaged in non-consensual sex with her. However, Atkinson maintains that the encounter was consensual, and denies the allegations made against him. The woman’s friend, who was also present at the time of the incident, has testified in court that she believed the woman was raped and decided to call the police. Atkinson, who was engaged at the time of the incident, claims that he realized he was cheating on his fiancée and stopped the encounter. The trial is ongoing.
