Acquitted of groping woman in nightclub

Have your say

A Spalding man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a nightclub has been cleared at Lincoln Crown Court.

Roman Rak was alleged to have twice groped the woman inside the After Dark night club in Boston after making unwanted advances towards her.

The prosecution also alleged he pinned the woman to the ground and sat astride her before carrying out a third sexual assault.

Rak (31), of Belcanto Court, denied three charges of sexual assault on June 24, 2012 and was acquitted.

He admitted a charge of common assault and was given a six month conditional discharge.

Rak was arrested after being detained by door staff at the club.

He told officers “We just had a cuddle and fell over together. I don’t even know her.”

Later he said he probably tripped and said he could not recall groping any woman in the club.

Earlier Caroline Bradley, prosecuting, told the jury that the woman made it clear that she was not interested in Rak and recruited a male friend to pose as her boyfriend in a bid to deter him.
