A footballer was jailed for five years today for raping a teenager who was "too drunk to consent" to sex as two of his friends watched and tried to film it on a mobile phone.
Sheffield United and Wales footballer Ched Evans was found guilty of raping the then 19-year-old at a hotel following a night out in Rhyl, north Wales, last May.
His co-defendant, Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald, was found not guilty of the same charge.
Court proceedings were disrupted after McDonald was acquitted, prompting a brief adjournment.
The court heard that both men admitted they had sex with the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, but the prosecution said she was too drunk to consent to sexual intercourse.
