A Croydon man has been jailed for ten years after jurors found him guilty of raping a woman in a Surrey park last year. Colin Ford, 58, had pleaded not guilty to raping the woman, who is in her 20s, in Whyteleafe Recreation Ground on May 18 2013. However, jurors at Guildford Crown Court found Ford guilty of one charge of rape. He has also been placed on the sex offenders register. The nine-day retrial was ordered after another jury had failed to reach a verdict during his first trial in December. Ford, of Fernhurst Road, Croydon, was also served with a sex offences banning order, preventing him from taking any female in a vehicle who was not aware of his conviction.
