During the trial of a December, 2011 rape case, the Nottingham Crown Court heard on May 28 that a law student was subjected to severe beating before being raped savagely. She was attacked at the Forest Recreation Ground (Nottingham) by 19-year-old Joseph Moran, said prosecutors adding the youngster always denied the allegations to raping the victim.

The unfortunate 22-year-old woman had £4.80 with her as bus fare but the driver of last late-night bus home ‘turfed her off.’ According to prosecutor Michael Auty, the driver was not willing to waive off 20p out of a £5 bus fare, he also flatly refused the girl’s request to let her withdraw the money she was short, from a nearby cash dispenser.

Left stranded and completely on-her-own at 3am in a city, the poor woman had no choice but to call her mother to come and pick her up. Returning after celebrating with friends the end of her graduate diploma in law exams; the student came across to meet Joseph. The suspect, who was completely drunk, allegedly dragged the victim into a park, grabbing her by the neck and savagely raped her.

Upon arriving at the spot her daughter had asked to pick her from, the victim’s mother was questioned by patrolling police instead whether what she was doing there in early morning hours. The mother told them the whole story and together they started looking up for the girl. Meanwhile, Joseph approached the cops and told them about a girl he saw; telling them may be she was raped by someone.

Cops soon found the girl, sitting half-naked (from her waist down) and crying but the poor mother was unable to immediately recognise her daughter; because of severe injuries and bruises the victim received during savage rape. Joseph was immediately arrested on suspicion of attacking the girl as he had evident mud and blood stains all over his clothes. The ‘defendant’ kept on yelling ‘Is this what one gets for helping someone,’ said Mr Auty.

Police report had revealed that the woman had ‘substantial’ injuries including black eyes, a face that was badly along with bruises to her neck, breasts and almost over entire body. The prosecutor suggested sudden and unexpected encounter with cops left Moran panicked thus he not only ran to them to tell about the girl; he also ‘made out he was the girl’s saviour.’
