Man rapes partner's identical twin, blames 'mistaken identity'

A MAN who raped his partner's identical twin has been jailed after telling police it was all a case of mistaken identity.

In reality the remorseless predator had told his partner's lookalike he had always harboured fantasies of sleeping with her.

The ultimate attack has torn the family apart with the twin sisters now estranged.

The 24-year-old was jailed for four years after being convicted of single counts of rape and indecent assault.

He fought the charges arguing his victim was a liar who had made unwanted sexual advances on him because she was jealous of her sister.
