Iain Rhodes to face trial over Rutherglen rape charge

A man is to stand trial accused of raping a woman while she was drunk and asleep at a house in South Lanarkshire.

Iain Rhodes, from Rutherglen, is alleged to have raped the woman at a property in the town on 29 April 2012.

The 53-year-old denies carrying out the attack while the woman was "asleep, under the influence of alcohol and incapable of giving consent".

During an appearance at the High Court in Glasgow, judge Lady Rae set a trial due to begin in September.

Update January 2018: In February 2015, Mr Rhodes was found not guilty of the charges at the High Court in Glasgow.
