London (ANI): A jury gave clean chit to Jack Tweed after he was accused of raping a girl in September last year. Jury took less than 20 minutes to clear him and his pal Anthony Davis off the rape charge. They were accused of preying on a 19-year-old student, but insisted the blonde was happy to take part in the threesome, reports The Sun.

"I am relieved the jury have taken a matter of minutes to see through these scurrilous and groundless allegations," said Jack's statement that was read by his solicitor. "I would like to thank my legal team who fought to establish my innocence. I now wish to put the last eight months behind me and rebuild my life as a 22-year-old man."

Jack added: "Personally I would just like to thank my family and friends and everyone who stood by me." Jack was said to have raped the girl twice at his house on a gated estate in Woodford Green, Essex, and Anthony once.
