IVE just seen this, knew there would be a thread. Marking place as I want to go and read how that happened.

I still believe her too

SpeakNoWords Fri 14-Oct-16 14:48:14

I believe her too. I feel sick to the stomach about this.

NewlySkinnyMe Fri 14-Oct-16 14:48:40

Unbelievable

MadisonAvenue Fri 14-Oct-16 14:49:13

Another who still believes her.
Awful, just awful.

I believe her too

BreconBeBuggered Fri 14-Oct-16 14:50:11

Ugh. Is that right, that her former sexual partners gave evidence?

kateclarke Fri 14-Oct-16 14:50:29

I still believe her too. Gutted.

Is there a link? Dreadful news.

I still believe her, urge I'm so bloody angry what have the dove?! Did no jury member listen to Michelle obamas speech?!

From the words out of his own mouth and his own acknowledged deeds I judge Ched Evans to be a vile creature and he can't escape from that.

Aquasport Fri 14-Oct-16 14:51:55

To think him and his bike family will now be splashed across pages of hello etc it's just leaves me sick to stomach

rosesandcashmere Fri 14-Oct-16 14:52:07

I believe her.

intheknickersoftime Fri 14-Oct-16 14:52:09

Absolutely disgraceful that he has got away with this.

AlistairSim Fri 14-Oct-16 14:52:38

I'm not shocked but I am so disappointed.
That poor woman sad

CanWeNot Fri 14-Oct-16 14:52:41

I still believe her

callmeadoctor Fri 14-Oct-16 14:53:36

How could she give consent when he admitted he didn't speak to her? Vile, vile man!

SpeakNoWords Fri 14-Oct-16 14:54:42

No actual new evidence, just tales of her sexual activity before and after the incident. Totally irrelevant. Sends a message out to rape victims, best not report your attack unless you have a socially acceptable sexual history.

PinkissimoAndPearls Fri 14-Oct-16 14:57:43

I believe her.

DownWithThisSortaThing Fri 14-Oct-16 14:57:49

I believe her.
I'm disappointed. I think he's a revolting person and she must have been through hell because of what he did.
Whatever the verdict, it's pretty clear that he has a disgusting attitude towards women and his behaviour was shameful.

LizardBreath Fri 14-Oct-16 15:02:30

Me too. The whole thing is awful. That poor woman.

MyKingdomForBrie Fri 14-Oct-16 15:02:36

It's terrifying that they can use her consensual sexual history in graphic detail in court, to be reported in the papers. Yes justice has to come first but there should be limits to admissibility for that kind of detail.

Scarydinosaurs Fri 14-Oct-16 15:05:09

I believe her.

What he described himself was rape. Sexual consent requires an enthusiastic YES. You can't do that if you're too inebriated to speak.
