The jury trial of Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding, who have been accused of sexual offences, has heard they allegedly boasted about their sexual activity on WhatsApp.
Jackson and Olding are accused of raping the same woman at a house in south Belfast in June of 2016. Both of the players deny the charges, with Jackson also denying a further charge of sexual assault.
The court heard, as per The Irish Examiner, that Olding allegedly wrote on WhatsApp:
“We are all top shaggers” and “There was a bit of spit roasting going on last night fellas.”
He later added:
“It was like a merry-go-around at a carnival.”
It is also alleged that Paddy Jackson replied on the same WhatsApp messaging service:
“There was a lot of spit.”
The case, which has been scheduled to last for five weeks, is being heard before Judge Patricia Smyth. Two other men have also been charged in connection with the alleged incident on June 28, 2016.
All four defendants have pleaded not guilty and are on bail. You can read more details about the first day of trial here.
