Dean Soloman

Years in prison:
Year of crime:
Year conviction was overturned:

Dean Solomon was convicted of raping two teenage models, aged 14 and 15 during a photographic and video session. Whilst he was being investigated in relation to further sex-related offences involving young girls, police found hidden at his home a video showing his sexual encounter with the two teenagers. Although indecent assault on underage girls was committed, the girls seemed to have consented and the purpose was making a pornographic film. His conviction for rape was therefore quashed.
