A man accused of raping an unconscious teenage girl at a party has admitted he fondled her breast.
Ezekiel Obasa, 21, changed his plea to guilty of sex assault while giving evidence at Canterbury Crown Court.
Obasa told the jury he had gone to the party in Gillingham in 2016 after reading about it on Instagram and drank eight drinks of cider.
“I was drunk and can only remember about half the night," he said.
He claimed to remember police arriving and asking the alleged victim for consent for oral sex.
Obasa, who denies rape, told how he began talking with the teenager and they began “play fighting” before going upstairs.
The prosecution has alleged that the girl passed out and was filmed being orally raped by Obasa.
Ezekiel Obasa, 21, of Upchurch, Essex and Cameran Allen, 19, of Ryde Close, Chatham, have both denied raping the teenager, who had just turned 17 at the time.
A 17 year old from Hammersmith has also pleaded not guilty to sexual assault and Sivio Ukaegbu, 21, of Redvers Road, Chatham – who is nicknamed ‘Prince’- has denied possessing and taking indecent photographs of a child.
Obasa said he also drank two “vodka shots” but didn’t realise they were alcoholic.
He claimed he asked the teenager whether she would give him oral sex and she replied: “Yeah I don’t mind”.
He added: “She seemed pretty drunk but she was less drunk than me.”
Obasa said during the sex act the teenager started to “deteriorate” and “her eyes started to close”.
He claimed: “I asked: 'Are you alright. Are you alright’ and she responded with a grunt."
The jury has been shown videos of the incident which were filmed by Allen and then were found on the mobile phones of the 17 year old and Ukaegbu.
Obasa said it “felt weird” being filmed although he admitted fist-pumping Allen afterwards.
The prosecution has also alleged that Obasa and another defendant urinated on the distressed youngster, who had woke up with vomit over her.
The trial continues.
