Last week Ched Evans, the leading goalscorer for Championship aspirants Sheffield United, was convicted of the rape of a 19-year old woman: a crime for which he received a five-year prison sentence. Evans’ friend, his team-mate Clayton McDonald, had brought the woman back to a hotel with him: McDonald had sexual intercourse with her, after which Evans did so. It was ruled that the woman was too drunk to have given Evans consent. McDonald was acquitted of the same charge.
