Rapper Aggro Santos was cleared of two charges of rape at Chichester Crown Court today. The 24-year-old from south London plead not guilty to accusations of raping a woman in a Yeovil hotel in 2010 and raping a 16-year-old in a Chichester hotel in 2011.

Aggro insisted that the sex with the two women was completely consensual.

The court heard that Aggro told detectives:

I would never have done that.

It goes against everything I have been brought up with, my morals and my pride.

It’s a really, really big card to pull out on someone.

The rapper’s friend 22-year-old Tyrelle Ritchie was also cleared of oral rape following the week long trial.
