The 26-year-old footballer has submitted ‘fresh new evidence’ with the hope of overturning his rape conviction.
It’s been a difficult few months for Ched Evans, some might say deservedly so, but they may be a bit quick to cast judgement, as the players legal team are handing information to the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC), who investigate wrongful convictions.
And the case may be referred to the Court Of Appeal if the CCRC deem it appropriate enough based on the evidence.
Evans has been unable to find a club since being released from prison in October last year. His girlfriend Natasha Massey has stood by him, and said yes when he proposed two weeks after leaving prison.
