Woman raped after being thrown off bus
Friday 08 June 2012
A man has been convicted of raping a young woman who had been thrown off her last bus home because she was 20p short of the fare.
Joseph Moran, 19, was found guilty by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court of rape and wounding with intent to cause GBH, police said.
The court heard that the woman had been out in the city on 9 December last year. After getting off the bus, she was grabbed by Moran, of Sneinton, who subjected her to what the jury heard was an appalling attack.
Moran will appear at the crown court on 27 July for sentencing.
