A man who has pleaded guilty to raping a teenage girl told authorties the sex was consensual--until he learned the young woman was gay.
According to U.K. site This Is Nottingham, the 17-year-old girl had stopped to go to the bathroom in the bushes on the grounds of Nottingham's Open University when James Hamilton appeared and forced himself on her. When the young woman screamed, he threatened to kill her and hit her until she passed out. He was still raping her when she came to.
Eventually he left the scene and the victim was able to call police.
When Hamilton was arrested following DNA identification, he claimed the encounter was consensual and that 17-year-old had instigated encounter.
But after police told the man his victim was a lesbian, he changed his tune and pleaded guilty to raping her. He will be sentenced next month.
