A bodybuilding maths teacher was cleared of rape for the second time – after having sex with two women at the same Christmas party.
High school teacher Jack Crosse, 33, denied the alleged sex attacks during the boozy festive bash held at his gym.
He was cleared of raping one woman in a trial in 2021 – but faced a retrial on allegations against a second alleged victim.
Crosse was accused of luring the young woman into a storeroom at the gym where he allegedly raped her in 2019.
But he claimed the sex was consensual after he downed Jack Daniel’s and coke all night – and a jury at Mold Crown Court cleared him for a second time.

Crosse claims he and the woman had consensual oral sex for between 30 seconds and a minute and spent around the same time having vaginal sex.
He told the court he and the woman went back into the party but did not speak after that.
He said: ‘I didn’t want to be a clingy. I really enjoyed what had just happened.
‘She seemed really happy.’

Mr Seal asked his client if he had found it strange he and the woman had not spoken after.
He said: ‘I did. My intention was to just leave the ball in her court.’
He added: ‘I just saw it as some casual fun.’
Crosse described himself as a six-out-of-10 drunk and said he had drunk around six or seven Jack Daniel’s and cokes during the night.
He added: ‘I was fairly merry.’
Asked if he lured the woman away and forced her to have sex with him Crosse replied ‘no.’
Mr Seal asked: ‘Did you rape her?’
Crosse replied: ‘No.’
Crosse, of Caerphilly, was cleared of two counts of rape.
