TEENAGE RAPE VICTIM BREAKS HER SILENCE AS SHE BACKS THE FEMALE JUDGE WHO WARNED WOMEN ARE PUTTING TH

Rape victim Megan Clark has backed a warning by the female judge presiding over her case that drunk women are putting themselves in danger.

Megan Clark, 19, was attacked by a man she met in a fast food restaurant after drinking beer and vodka during a night out in Manchester.

Judge Lindsey Kushner was criticised by campaigners after the attacker's trial, for warning that potential attackers 'gravitate towards girls who have been drinking'.

Ms Clark has now dismissed claims Judge Kushner was 'victim blaming', insisting she was just warning people to be more careful.

Rape victim Megan Clark has bravely waived her right to anonymity as she backs a judge who warned of the threat to women who drink heavily on nights out.

Waiving her right to anonymity, Ms Clark told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire that she took the judge's comments in a 'positive way' and she did not believe she was 'victim-blaming'.

'She was right in what she said,' Ms Clark added.

The Judge's comments – at the end of her final trial before retiring – prompted massive criticism from campaigners and charities.

The judge said: 'Girls are perfectly entitled to drink themselves into the ground but should be aware people who are potential defendants to rape gravitate towards girls who have been drinking.

'It shouldn't be like that but it does happen and we see it time and time again.

Judge Lindsey Kushner sparked the row in her comments during the sentencing of Ricardo Rodrigues-Fortes-Gomes pictured.

The attack took place in Manchester's Canal Street after the victim was removed from a club

Dame Vera Baird, police and crime commissioner of Northumbria Police, accused Judge Lindsey Kushner of 'victim-blaming'

My opinion- The judge said the right thing I don't know why all the people that criticised her think they are right

Why not use that energy to warn young girls of the dangers of getting drunk while they are out in the midst of strangers.
