Charles Goodwin, a 21 year old MMA fighter was charged with rape and sexual assault of a woman and was later let off by the police but while remaining under investigation had again raped and sexually assaulted two university students just months after his initial release and has now been convicted with a “lengthy period of imprisonment” expected.
Back in 2020, Charles Goodwin was found guilty of raping, assault by penetration as well as sexual assault of three women on several different occasions. In January, Goodwin was arrested on charges of raping a woman he met at a nightclub in central Manchester. They had gone back to the woman’s place but while in her room, Goodwin turned aggressive and raped the victim while choking her throat.
While under investigation for his first rape accusation, Goodwin raped and sexually assaulted two university students
After his initial arrest, Goodwin was later released without charge on bail under investigation. However, just eight months later in September the same year, the MMA fighter was once again accused on two different occasions of rape and assault of two more university students while he was still under investigation.
At first, Goodwin got a student drunk and raped her at the university halls. They had been seeing each other for some time and had consensually slept together but one night Goodwin got her heavily intoxicated and the next morning when she woke up she found Goodwin was having sex with her and also realized she was anally raped the previous night.
Just three days later after this incident, Goodwin had sexually assaulted another woman in the same uni halls. The third victim, who was upset because of a boy not being in a relationship with her, was given a lot of alcohol by Goodwin, before getting his hands on her genitals and forcing her to touch his own private parts. While she tried to get up Goodwin had smacked her bottom.
The Times stated that Goodwin, a student of business management, had presented himself as a “sex god” to the second victim and called himself a “hopeless romantic” at the Liverpool Crown Court.
A jury had convicted him at the Liverpool Crown Court in January and the judge told Goodwin, who will be sentenced this Thursday, to expect “a lengthy period of imprisonment”.
