Students

Students weren't like this in my day. I don't think this chap was doing Diana Studies.

A businessman who raped a lesbian in the street after boasting ‘I am going to show you what a real man is’ has been jailed for just over eight years.

Duncan Empson, 32, was a student when he carried out the attack on the 50-year-old six years ago in Central London with an unidentified accomplice.

He hid the dark secret and went on to become a model family man living with his partner and her children in West Reading.

But police took his DNA after he was given a caution for battery after throwing a packet of biscuits at a shopkeeper during a heated row.


Model family man living with partner, eh ? I suppose simply being in the same house as your kids makes you a role model now. Did I say his kids ?

Defence barrister Wayne Cleaver said: “He has been living with his partner and her children in the Reading area and taken on a whole new and responsible life and he had become a model family man.

“Developing that business, acting as a father to her partner’s children and effectively her husband, in all but name, the man who committed this offence is a very different man in many ways to the man who is before the court today.”

Laban,

I liked this -

"the man who committed this offence is a very different man in many ways to the man who is before the court today.”

That's not what the DNA says!
