Gay Tryst Strangler Gets Three Years

Gay Tryst Strangler Gets Three Years


James Foley was sentenced to three and a half years for strangling Fathi Bouchareb to death after they met for a secret gay tryst in London earlier this year.

The UK Press Association reports that a jury cleared Foley, 21, of murder and convicted him of manslaughter after the defendant argued that Bouchareb, a 26-year-old Algerian, had attacked him and tried to steal his Rolex watch. The two met outside the G.A.Y. bar and went to Bedford Square for sex one evening this past March.

According to the Press Association, Foley, who had recently got engaged to his girlfriend, had been partying at a lap dance venue prior to meeting Bouchareb. He told the jury that he had never had a gay sexual experience before.

"He strangled Mr Bouchareb with his own black scarf and left him for dead in the square -- where his body was found the next morning -- before returning to the lapdancing club and the group he had been there with," reports the UKPA.
