Gurdeep Garcha successfully defends man accused of rape of “paralytic” woman

Gurdeep Garcha represented a man who was unanimously acquitted of rape by a jury at Birmingham Crown Court. The defendant was alleged to have gone with the complainant to a flat after meeting in a nightclub in Aston.

It was the prosecution case that the complainant was incapable of consenting to sexual activity because she was severely intoxicated and therefore lacked capacity. It was the defence case that the complainant whilst in drink, was not so drunk, and consented to sexual intercourse.
