Jailed Australian cricketer Alex Hepburn loses appeal against rape conviction
Australian-born ex-Worcestershire player Alex Hepburn was convicted for sexually assaulting a sleeping woman in April last year. The 24-year-old was jailed for five years last April for assaulting a ‘dozing’ woman during a ‘conquest’ game he helped set up on WhatsApp. Hepburn had challenged the conviction earlier this month. However, to add to his woes, he has lost his appeal to overturn the conviction.
