Aggro Santos - Aggro Santos Cleared Of Rape
Rapper Aggro Santos has been cleared of two counts of rape.
The 24-year-old hip-hop star was acquitted by a jury at Chichester Crown Court in England on Friday (03May13).
The Candy hitmaker, real name Yuri Santos, was arrested in Chichester in May 2011 as cops investigated claims a woman was assaulted in a hotel room. He was subsequently accused of involvement in another incident in Somerset, England the previous September (10).
Santos' friend and co-defendant Tyrelle Ritchie, 22, was also found not guilty on one charge of oral rape.
The trial was the second courtroom showdown for the pair after a jury last year (12) failed to reach a verdict.
Santos' lawyer Phil Smith told reporters the star is "obviously delighted that the jury promptly have reached the right verdict".
