Sher Khan, 19, of Beckhampton Road, Bestwood Park, denied the charges
A man has been found not guilty of raping two young girls.
Sher Khan, 19, of Beckhampton Road, Bestwood Park, was cleared by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday, March 13.
The teenager denied both charges made against him by the youngsters.
The first girl – who Khan was alleged to have forced to perform a sexual act on him – met him on Facebook.
They got together in Woodthorpe Park and kissed on a bench.
She suggested they go somewhere. Mr Khan had told the jury at his trial: “I said could we go to one of my friend’s houses? She said ‘yes’.”
Mr Khan got the key to the pal’s place and went there with the girl.
He alleged the girl told him to lie on the bed and she sat beside him. He then claimed she performed a sexual act on him, followed by sex.
But when questioned by his barrister, Paul Valder: “Did you force her to have oral sex?”
Mr Khan replied: “No”.
The jury also heard how the first girl met with Mr Khan again with her friend – whose allegation formed the second charge against him. This time they went back to a Sherwood flat.
Mr Khan claimed the first girl left to phone her dad. He went outside with the second girl to look for her but she had gone, so they went back inside.
Mr Khan had told the jury through an interpreter: “Then she asked me ‘whether you want to have sex with me?’ I asked her ‘how old are you?’ She said ’17’.
“I told her ‘I don’t have condom’. She said ‘that’s not a problem’. She took her clothes off and I took my clothes off”.
Asked by Mr Valder, if he forced her to have sex, he replied: “no”.
