A man accused of raping a woman after he had attacked her following an argument has been cleared of the rape charges.
James Woodland, of Augusta Place, Ramsgate, had denied two rapes and one charge of oral rape.
A jury at Canterbury Crown Court today unanimously found him not guilty of these charges.
Woodland had admitted assaulting the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, making threats to kill her and keeping her prisoner.
Judge Adele Williams remanded Woodland in custody until September 19, when he will be sentenced for the offences he has admitted.
