The jury has begun their deliberations
The jury in Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding’s rape trial have been sent home for the night after completing their first day of deliberations.
The Ireland and Ulster rugby players deny raping a 19-year-old student at a party in Jackson’s south Belfast home in June 2016.
Their friend Blane McIlory denies one count of exposure and another friend Rory Harrison denies perverting the course of justice and withholding information.
Before sending out the jury, Judge Patricia Smyth finished her summary of the evidence and addressed the differences between the various accounts recalled by the defendants - which the prosecution claim supports their theory that a story was “cooked up” in case a complaint was made.
Judge Smyth told the jurors it was up to them to decide if some or all of the accused are lying - but warned that just because an inconsistency exists, it does not mean they are telling lies.
