A GRANDFATHER made an outburst at jurors as he was found guilty of rape.
Liverpool crown court jurors took just over five hours to convict David Roach, 50, of raping a prostitute he had picked up in his car in October 2007.
As the verdict was delivered, Roach sank back in his chair, before shouting: “What are you f****** doing?”
Roach, of Sparling Street, Liverpool city centre, was removed from court by three security guards.
Less than an hour earlier, Roach, who has a lengthy criminal record, was cleared of another charge of rape and a further offence of kidnapping a different woman, also in October 2007.
Judge John Phipps remanded him in custody to await sentencing on July 9.
