A GODMANCHESTER man accused of sexually assaulting a woman at his home has been cleared of all charges.
Paul Hagan-Chambers, 50, was found not guilty on four charges of rape and one of sexual assault by a jury at Peterborough Crown Court last Wednesday.
However, Hagan-Chambers will still face a prison sentence after admitting causing the woman actual bodily harm at his home in Tudor Road last year.
He admitted punching the woman in the face, but said it during a row in which the woman had jabbed at him with a knife.
The complainant, who formerly lived in Hartford, had claimed Hagan-Chambers detained her at his address and raped her during a 10-day period in March 2006.
Hagan-Chambers said the woman had come to stay with him after being evicted from her previous accommodation.

He had told the court the pair had consensual sex during the period and had made sure he had consent after she had made a previous allegation against him.
Sentencing was adjourned for reports for Hagan-Chambers, who was found guilty of another assault in the 10-day period at an earlier trial.
He has already served more than a year in prison on remand while awaiting trial.
