British tycoon forces sex without consent because he's rich

Gregory Charles Cox, 32, is facing two charges of having sexual intercourse without consent with a then-21-year-old Bermuda woman he met at beachside bar The Bucket List on January 22, 2012.He has pleaded not guilty.
The woman from Bermuda claimed Cox had said: ‘You can tell the police, you can tell whoever you like but this will never go anywhere – I’ve got a lot of money.’Crown Prosecutor Elizabeth Wilkins SC told the court today that the woman had kissed and exchanged phone numbers with the man’s friend Christopher Galea.The court heard that the 32-year-old woman also spoke to Cox, who founded his own financial services firm, about the English private school he went to while at beachfront bar The Bucket List in January 2012.The pair then went to the beach after many hours drinking together when she remembers Cox sitting against a concrete wall while she had her back to the ocean.According to Ninemsn, Ms Wilkins said: ‘She recalls being on her knees, trying to stand up but not being able to.‘She recalls being held down, she recalls crying and being terrified.’In his opening address to the jury in May, prosecutor Huw Baker said: ‘She recalls being on her knees and she tried to stand up but being unable to stand up because something was holding her down,’ he said. ‘She recalls being terrified at that point.’Cox is then said to have forced her to perform a sex act on him.
Afterwards, her cries for help were heard by a young couple and she was taken to a police station, where officers described her as being ‘distressed, shivering and crying’.Police were also said to have heard her say: ‘He told me over and over again that he had a lot of money.’
