Dad of Ched Evans rape accuser: 'They might as well have said my daughter was asking for it'
The 'sickened' dad of the woman who accused Ched Evans of raping has slammed prosecution lawyers for raking through his daughter's private life.
The 27-year-old footballer was found not guilty yesterday of raping the woman, then 19, in a hotel room in Rhuddlan, North Wales, in May 2011.
After the acquittal, the accuser's father - who cannot be named for legal reasons - said lawyers might as well have said she was 'asking for it.'
He said he was ‘sickened’ by the fact that two of his daughter's ex-lovers were allowed to give evidence at Evans’s retrial about her sexual history.
