TV star cleared of sexual assault and rape charges

A young television actor has been cleared of sexually assaulting a teenage boy.

London's Blackfriars Crown Court heard claims the star, who cannot be identified because of his age, "bullied" his alleged victim and used him "for a sexual game".

He was said to have attacked the boy to prove to his girlfriend that he was bisexual. But the defendant claimed their sexual activity was consensual.

Today, after four and three quarter hours of deliberation, the jury cleared him of the charges he faced, which were three counts of sexual assault and one of rape.
