HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A man accused in a high-profile Henrico rape case has been found not guilty, according to attorneys.
The jury found Driton Sulejmani not guilty on all charges after a week-long trial. It was his second time going to trial on the charges. Jurors convicted Sulejmani of rape and sodomy in February 2014, after a two day trial and two hours of deliberations. In July 2014, a Henrico circuit court judge threw out the convictions against Sulejmani, ordering a new trial because of evidence withheld from the defense.
Sulejmani was accused of attacking and raping a woman at the Shoppes at Innsbrook in July of 2013. Sulejmani testified at trial that the events of the night were consensual, but the victim says Sulejmani slammed her head into a brick wall, then sodomized and raped her.
