BRITISH ACTOR TO RETURN TO BARBADOS TO REFUTE CHARGES RELATED TO RAPE – CLAIMS SEX WAS CONSENSUAL

Ben Freeman stayed at Almond Beach Village in late 2006, he apparently liked Barbados and had a great time until the rape accusation from a fellow Brit, which was covered by B’dos Free Press.

Now, he is due to return to dispute those claims – this will not be an easy battle as there are many cases of Celebrity Excess in this country (Mind you, there are some occasions when folks get a mere slap on the wrist, even here!), and we all know what happens with Peter & Paul…

Nevertheless, it seems Mr Freeman is set to face the piper right here next month, according to the UK’s online version of the Mirror

[The 28 year old actor] will fly into Bridgetown to fight a charge that could put him behind bars for 20 years without hope of parole if convicted.

His accuser, from Cheshire, who was 16 at the time of the alleged attack two years ago, is among 15 witnesses lined up by the prosecution. He insists that she consented to sex.

The actor, who is on ?25,000 bail, has been suspended from the soap in which he plays mechanic Scott Windsor.
