    Not guilty in Good Samaritan rape case

    A Deaf Blacks rugby player accused of attacking a woman he helped following a Hamilton road crash has been found not guilty of rape.


    A Deaf Blacks rugby player has been found not guilty of rape after being accused of attacking a woman he stopped to help after a car crash.

    A jury on Friday cleared Christian Edward Grey, 36, of the three charges following his trial in Hamilton District Court this week.

    Grey, who is profoundly deaf, said he had consensual sex with the woman after she argued with her partner following a crash in Fairview Downs, Hamilton, in November last year.

    After the jury delivered its decision, Judge Merelilna Burnett confirmed Grey had previously been convicted of rape, but that information was not available to the jury.
