Soldier, 23, accused of raping woman while she slept in Dundee flat walks free

The High Court in Edinburgh.

A soldier has walked free following a four-day trial for allegedly raping a woman in a Dundee flat while she slept.

Sean Diamond, 23, whose address was listed in court documents as Nicholls Avenue, Leuchars, denied carrying out the attack at an address in the city on July 15 two years ago.

It was alleged that Diamond — who is a serving soldier based at Leuchars — raped the woman while she was sleeping.

But today’s verdict at the High Court in Edinburgh was not proven by a majority.
