R v Bogdan Drezaliu

July 2, 2015

Nigel Booth prosecuted in the case of a 21-year-old man who attempted to rape a woman at Clayton Vale. The woman was jogging when she was attacked, and onlookers stepped in to restrain the man before he cycled away.

Drezaliu of Newton Heath admitted attempted rape and an unconnected burglary for which he was on bail at the time, and was given a four-year jail sentence, with licence extended until 2022.

The case received coverage in the Manchester Evening News, the Mirror and the Daily Mail.
