A POLICE officer and former Mr Gay UK wept in the dock as he was cleared of raping a man and carrying out two sexual assaults.
Supporters of Pc Mark Carter clapped and cheered in the public gallery as a jury cleared him of a number of counts at Leeds Crown Court.
Pc Carter, 28, was accused of sexually assaulting three men and raping a fourth while on a Christmas night out with colleagues.
He was cleared of two rape charges and two sexual assault charges today.
The jury failed to reach a verdict on another sexual assault charge.
A decision on whether to proceed with a retrial on the charge will be made next week.
