A gay British man is facing jail for four and a half years after posing as a gay teen to rob his foster parents and make a rape claim against his counsellor.
Shane Peake, 26, contacted Wiltshire Council in June pretending to be a gay vulnerable 17-year-old kicked out by his family.
He told them his name was Steven Shaw.
He was placed in supported lodgings, while LGBT charity Rainbow Rooms’ Will Clark helped out with advice and care.
But when the 43-year-old who ran Rainbow Rooms for six years began to have doubts, Peake accused him of rape.
