UK man on trial for allegedly raping two drunk women in hotel10/27/2020
A man in the UK is on trial for allegedly following two drunk women into their hotel room and raping them during a threesome he claims was consensual.
Prosecutors said Callum Kenny, 24, of Cornwall attacked the pair in Bristol in late 2018 — including having “rough sex” with one of them when the other pal was in the bathroom, the Bristol Post reported.
The women had returned to their hotel room after spending a night on the town drinking wine, sangria and gin and then heading to a nightclub for dancing and sharing a shot of tequila, prosecutor Sarah Regan told jurors in Bristol Crown Court on Monday.
Surveillance video from the hotel showed the friends returning to the hotel.
“The two women were clearly drunk,” Regan said.
The footage also captured Kenny — who was in the city to watch a soccer match — noticing the pair, following them back to their room — and heading inside.
At some point, one of the women was in the bathroom and noticed her friend having “rough sex” with Kenny. She asked her pal whether she had brought the man back to the room, the jury heard.
“The woman thought her friend had brought the man back,” Regan said. “Her friend said she (the woman in the bathroom) was with him. The woman had absolutely no recall of having sex with the man — she thought her friend was joking.”
Regan contends the women were so plastered that she couldn’t have possibly given consent.
Kenny claims the sex was consensual, telling police that the women invited him in. He said he had sex with one woman before the romp became a threesome — and then had sex again with one of the women while the other was in the bathroom.
He also admitted to drinking that night and taking under a gram of cocaine.
