He denied to the end being responsible despite the testimony from an expert saying the chance of someone else's DNA being on the victim was a 30 billion to one chance. Anyone who supports this girl who claims to have been raped is the dirtiest person on earth. A failed asylum seeker - identified only as Eric X pictured in court - raped a woman camping in a nature reserve while threatening her with a machete.
