A RAPIST MMA fighter has been released by police after sexually assaulting a woman who assaulted two more college students just months later.
Charles Goodwin, 21, was found guilty of rape, penetration by penetration and sexual assault in separate incidents involving three women.
The University of Liverpool business management student described himself as a “sex god” and told Liverpool Crown Court he was a “hopeless romantic”. The Times reported.
In January 2020, Goodwin met a woman in a nightclub in central Manchester and the two returned to her lobby.
He told her she should be “treated like a princess”, the court heard, but once inside her room he became aggressive.
While raping her, he tried to strangle her while calling her name like a “slut”.
He raped her anal while holding her neck despite her exclaiming “no”.
She said: “I was so scared for my life. I thought he was going to kill me.”
After her roommate knocked on the door, she was able to get rid of him and filed a complaint with GMP at 5:30 a.m. shortly after he left.
Goodwin was arrested but he was released on bail without charge because of the investigation.
Just eight months later, in September 2020, he arrested a drunken student and raped her at their college hall.
In the same motel room, he sexually assaulted another woman just three days later.
The two slept comfortably together, but a few nights later, she was too drunk to walk.
Despite being put to bed by another friend, when she woke up in the morning, Goodwin had sex with her.
She was confused before recalling screaming when Goodwin had raped her the night before.
For two days, the woman had scratches on her abdomen and handprints on her body.
When she called her sister, she said: “She saw me: I am in a state of confusion and trying to work out what happened. I was in a lot of pain that day.”
He convinces her not to go to the police and insists it was a drunken mistake.
‘TOO THIS WHAT HE WANT’
Just three days later, Goodwin comforted a woman who was upset over another student’s disinterest in a relationship.
Goodwin gave her so much alcohol that she couldn’t even stand up.
When he was alone, he tried to make her touch his penis, and as she walked away, he pulled her pants down and hit her twice on her butt.
She said: “There hasn’t been any prior communication about what [we] may like. He just takes what he wants.”
When the woman discovered another woman had complained to him, she was frustrated action was not taken immediately.
The second victim said: “Why were the three victims reburied?
“Why wasn’t he rehabilitated immediately? I think there are definitely failures in handling the case in Manchester.”
The judge said he should expect “a long period of imprisonment” after a jury found him guilty at Liverpool crown court in January.
Goodwin will be sentenced on Thursday.
