A man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for raping a lesbian woman in a Bristol bar where he worked.
Charles Franklin, 30, claims he met the woman, who’s name has been withheld because of legal reasons, on the street and offered to charge her phone at his bar.
According to him ‘one thing led to another’ on the bar floor.
The woman, who had left a wedding at around 1am, had three times the amount of alcohol legal for driving and did not remember leaving the wedding. The woman told the court she woke up to Franklin raping her.
