Saudi millionaire who said he 'fell' on teen and 'accidentally penetrated' her cleared of rape
A Saudi millionaire and property developer has been acquitted of raping a teenage girl after claiming he tripped, fell on her and accidentally penetrated her.
Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of raping the 18-year-old at his opulent British apartment after a night of heavy drinking.
The well-known developer had invited the teen and her 24-year-old friend to his home, after partying at a West End night club, The Independent reported.
He had sex with the elder woman in a bedroom, he said, and had gone to see if the teen, who was asleep on his couch, needed something to sleep in.
Abdulaziz said his erect penis may have been poking out of his underwear when he fell on the girl.
She contended that she awoke to find him on top of her, penetrating her with his penis.
He claimed she pulled him toward her and he lost his balance.
"I'm fragile. I fell down but nothing ever happened, between me and this girl, nothing ever happened," according to the news site.
Jurors deliberated for just 30 minutes before finding him not guilty.
