Taser man is cleared of rape attack
11:00am Thursday 29th March 2012 in News
A MAN who tasered and repeatedly beat up a teenage girl has been cleared of raping and imprisoning her.
Jay Dyce was unanimously acquitted of one charge of rape and another of false imprisonment at Oxford Crown Court yesterday.
But the 21-year-old is still likely to be jailed after earlier admitting beating her and using a stungun on her.
He pleaded guilty to three counts of causing actual bodily harm and to possessing an offensive weapon.
Jurors in the three-day trial were shown clips Dyce had filmed on his mobile phone of the girl performing a sex act on him.
She admitted one of the three clips was consensual but said the other two depicted a forced act.
Under cross examination she also admitted having full consensual sex with Dyce, of Gaisford Road, Cowley, later that same evening.
Detailing the physical violence she suffered, the girl, who cannot be identified, said she was punched, kicked and whipped with a belt by Dyce. She said he also made her cut herself with a razor and threatened to throw boiling water over her. Judge Anthony King remanded Dyce in custody to be sentenced next month.
