Nita Dowell, Senior Crown Prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service in Wales, said:
Ched Evans took advantage of a vulnerable young woman who was in no fit state to consent to sexual activity. He did so knowingly and with a total disregard for her physical or emotional wellbeing.
It is a myth that being vulnerable through alcohol consumption means that a victim is somehow responsible for being raped. The law is clear; being vulnerable through drink or drugs does not imply consent.
Rape is an extremely damaging offence, but it can also be one of the most misunderstood and difficult to prosecute.
The Crown Prosecution Service, in partnership with the police and other agencies, is working hard to help combat and dispel the myths and stereotypes that exist around the issue of rape.
