    THE aspiring model and actor who was accused of raping a woman in Rusthall last year is now facing further charges.

    Chiron Hutchinson, 19, of Mount Pleasant, Uckfield, will stand trial on August 7 on 19 charges against five alleged victims.

    A former pupil of St Bede’s School near Hailsham, Hutchinson was originally accused of one charge of raping a woman at a secluded wooded spot just off Harmony Street in Rusthall on October 8.
