Nita Dowell, Senior Crown Prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service in Wales, said:
“The Crown Prosecution Service respects the verdicts of the jury in relation to both defendants.
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.
Professional footballer, Ched Evans, has lodged an appeal against his conviction of rape.
North Wales police have met with Sky News after the broadcaster inadvertently revealed the victim's name in the Ched Evans rape case.
