Share post:

Sylvan Sylvester Thorne, 61, of Riverland, St Philip, was acquitted of rape on Tuesday in the No. 2 Supreme Court.

The nine-member jury returned a majority verdict to Justice Randall Worrell just after two hours of deliberations.

Thorne had been accused of having sexual intercourse with a woman without her consent, knowing that she did not consent or was reckless as to whether she so consented on January 14, 2007.

He was represented by Queen’s Counsel Michael Lashley, Dr Lenda Blackman, Faith Greaves-Agard and Seantelle Parris, while Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Alliston Seale prosecuted. (RA)
