Teenager guilty of trying to kill rape victim on his 17th birthday

A "barbaric and wicked" rapist who bludgeoned a woman with a paving slab on his 17th birthday and then left her for dead has been found guilty of attempted murder. A judge ruled that Charlie John Pearce's identity should be revealed to the public after the teenager - who "came within a hair's breadth" of killing his victim - was unanimously convicted at Leicester Crown Court.
