Cricketer Alex guilty of raping sleeping woman

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Wall of West Mercia police welcomed the conviction and said Hepburn had been in "a position of trust and power" at the time of the assault.
He will be sentenced at Hereford Crown Court on April 30, with the judge warning a custodial sentence was inevitable.
Prosecutor Ms Miranda Moore QC said earlier in the retrial: "A sleeping girl can not consent".
According to Daily Mail, WhatsApp exchanges that suggested the cricketer had sex with 60 women during a previous "game" were not put before the jurors. The messages, however, were not used during the at either of his trials.
A message written by Hepburn said: "Oi last night was my 60th". However, the woman stated that she thought it was Hepburn's former county team-mate Joe Clarke in the dimly-lit apartment, who had left the bedroom after getting sick, leaving the woman asleep and alone. "Want 80 by the end of Worcs".
Other messages sent by Hepburn read "it feels like there is a population of 150 birds in Worcester and we have pumped every single one of them" and "get them blind and then back to ours".
Hepburn told a retrial at Worcester Crown Court that the woman made eye contact with him and then kissed him, instigating a consensual sexual encounter lasting around 20 minutes.
In his own testimony, Alex Hepburn said he believed he was having consensual sex, and said that he had consumed up to twenty beers before the incident.
Jurors did hear details of messages sent by Hepburn in the week of the night out which landed him in court - in which he apparently referred to threesomes involving Clarke.
Giving evidence, Hepburn had told the court: "She was engaging in the act so I presumed she was enjoying it". Clarke was in the bathroom when Hepburn had attacked the woman.
During his evidence on Wednesday this week, Hepburn admitted he sent "disgusting, terrible and embarrassing" messages via WhatsApp while setting the rules of a sexual conquest competition to have sex with as many new partners as possible. She would not have countenanced sexual activity with Hepburn.
"It would not be a consideration to you to abandon you under any bogus impression with regards to the motivation behind that report".
