Delaware County Jury Finds Man Not Guilty of Rape

The jury found a Philadelphia man not guilty of rape thereby avoiding a mandatory five year prison sentence. The Defendant picked up a young woman who was hitchhiking and eventually took her back to her residence and had consensual intercourse. The woman later told her boyfriend that she was raped by the Defendant. The cross-examination by Mr. Rubino caused the jury to question the veracity of the alleged victim’s version of events and the Defendant was found not guilty of all charges.
