A man studying to become a doctor has been convicted of indecent assault for grabbing his Tinder date's breasts with "excessive force" during consensual sex.

Philip Queree, 37, met the woman on the dating app and they had sex on their second date.

During intercourse, he pulled her hair and repeatedly squeezed her breasts despite her telling him to stop because it hurt, Jersey Magistrate's Court heard.

In a written judgement reported by the Jersey Evening Post, magistrate Bridget Shaw said: "I am sure that Miss X withdrew consent for Queree to grab her breasts. Queree knew this but continued to do so forcefully, causing the complainant considerable pain. This was an assault.

"Queree touched a sexual and intimate part of her body in a sexual manner without her consent. Irrespective of her consent to other sexual conduct, I am sure that the touching was in circumstances of indecency and thus Queree is guilty of indecent assault."

The woman, who works as a health worker, said she suffered bruising to both of her breasts and had difficulty lifting her arm after the assault.

Sentencing Queree, Ms Shaw said: "This was a serious sexual assault. It is not the most serious sexual assault but it is not at the lower end of the scale."

Queree has been put on the sex offenders' register for five years and handed a five-year restraining order preventing him from having any contact with the victim.

The mature student, who was in his third year at King's College medical school in London, had to drop out as a result of his conviction.

His lawyer said he intends to appeal against the conviction to Jersey's Royal Court.
