She is still a teenager, coming to terms with what happened to her and was particularly vulnerable in her state and level of extreme intoxication.”She has been left anxious and afraid, reclusive and scared and really repulsed by an idea of any intimate relationships.”Telling the court Naker had no previous convictions and was a “graduate with a successful career”, the judge said: “You have a respectable life who had a good future ahead of you, with your background you have a network of caring friends and family. “If you formed a view that the woman wanted to have sex with you, you were very much mistaken.”Naker insisted he would have stopped if he believed the 18-year-old was not consenting.But Naker was convicted by a jury of three charges of rape, one count of attempted rape and one of sexual assault. He was cleared of a further charge of assault by penetration having denied all charges. As Naker was led from the dock, his mother began to wail as friends told him to be brave and stay strong. The teenage college student had joined her cousin on a night out to celebrate a birthday and she knew nobody else at the club.She learnt the next day how she had been kissing a man from the party on the sofas in the VIP area later that night, but had no recollection of it. “It shows she fell and banged her head, and even in her intoxicated state, she was trying to get away from you. When she woke up in pain in hospital the next day she said she ‘felt really really scared.’She sobbed as the told the court: “I did not remember having sexual intercourse with anyone that night. I do not go clubbing very often and I don’t drink that much.”It was like I was drugged or something and my head hurt so I thought I might have hit it at some point. I did not want to have sex.” She could be seen outside on CCTV staggering about after being denied re-entry to the club, falling into a gutter.Naker, of Wood Green, north London, was jailed for eight years and placed on the sex offenders’ register for life. A married PriceWaterhouseCooper consultant raped a teenager who was so drunk she could “barely stand up” after picking her up from the gutter outside a London nightclub. Sanjay Naker, 28, dragged the 18-year-old into an alleyway to rape her after she was thrown out of Number 1 club in London Bridge for being too intoxicated.He slung the teenager over his shoulder and carried her from the busy street on 11 March last year before subjecting his victim to a 30 minute attack.Naker was found by a passerby at 4.45am, standing over the woman and zipping up his trousers, as she lay unconscious and half naked.He told police the teenager had begged him for sex, and even got back into bed with his wife in the early hours after returning to the house he shared with her and his mother.  Sanjay Naker arriving at courtCredit:Brais G. Rouco/Central News Judge Freya Newberry told Naker at Inner London Crown Court: “It was quite clear that you decided that you wanted to have sex with her and she had no recollection of what happened but you saw an opportunity.”It was a mixture of your own desire and arrogance regardless of any intoxication on your part.”You took her to a filthy secluded corner, and the CCTV footage which is compelling to my mind, shows that she could barely stand up.
