A surgeon who allegedly tricked a student into having s.e.x without a condom despite her insisting they used one is being tried for r.a.p.e.
A court was told how hospital consultant Mathew Sewell, 40, is facing two allegations of rape after he deceived a student he had met on Tinder into having s.e.x without a condom, reports Teeside Live.
He later contacted the woman, who was a student, to inform her she may have been exposed to chlamydia.
The woman claims that on two occasions in 2017, the consultant spinal surgeon did not wear protection, despite being fully aware of her want to use one.
She later informed her via WhatsApp that she could be at risk of catching chlamydia from him and urged her to seek medical attention.
Sewell who now lives in Twickenham, south west London, denies two charges of r.a.p.e and is currently on trial at Teeside Crown Court.
The court heard that the alleged victim later admitted to police that she had “embellished” part of her initial account.
The trial continues.
