A rapist who attacked a teenager leaving a bar will stay in jail after an attempt to appeal his conviction was thrown out of court. 

Mohammed Maqsood, 36, was imprisoned for six years after raping an 18-year-old woman leaving a bar in Shawlands on December 5, 2016.

He appealed his conviction on the grounds that the sex between him and the victim was consensual.

But Scotland’s most senior judge, Lord Carloway, rejected Maqsood’s appeal, according to the Daily Record.

Lord Carloway said the victim had been too drunk to consent to sex.

Maqsood had also claimed that the trial judge had misdirected the jury, but judges rejected that appeal also.

The appeal judges were told that Maqsood saw his victim leaving a pub in Shawlands with a friend, also 18.

He offered the young woman a lift, before raping her several miles away at a car park in Thornliebank.

He then left her in the street, where she was later discovered by her mother and boyfriend.

Maqsood then went to a 24-hour gym, where he washed and put his victim’s clothes in a charity skip.

Maqsood admitted having sex with the girl but he claimed it was consensual and had been initiated by her.

Appeal judges rejected his appeal and he will continue his six-year sentence.

Lord Carloway said: “The Crown contended that the complainer was incapable of consent as a result of the effects of alcohol, that incapacity does require proof.

“The corroboration in this case came from the evidence of the complainer’s friend, bar staff, the CCTV recording and the complainer’s boyfriend and her mother. The trial judge’s directions were entirely in favour of the appellant (Maqsood). They did not cause any miscarriage of justice. The appeal is accordingly refused.”
