Sicko who raped girl, 17, before going back to takeaway ‘falls 40ft in prison’

A vile rapist who targeted an intoxicated 17-year-old is reportedly fighting for his life after plummeting 40ft from a prison balcony.

Ji Ren Lin, 32, fell three floors at HMP Barlinnie in Glasgow, Scotland, it is claimed.

He suffered head, neck and leg injuries, and was taken to the city’s Royal Infirmary, The Scottish Sun reports.

Lin, 32, carried his victim into a lane in Glasgow city centre on November 21, 2018, and raped her.

He afterwards went back to work at a Chinese restaurant.

Passers-by found her “stumbling, distressed and crying” and worried “someone would take advantage of her in that state”.

The teenager died in March 2019 after taking her own life.

Hong Kong-born Lin denied the charge and claimed the girl agreed to have sex with him.

However, he was convicted of rape after a three-day trial on October 16 this year.

Lin is now said to be in “a really bad way” after hitting a concrete floor.

A source told The Scottish Sun: “He must have fallen from about 40ft. Staff had to work on him to keep him alive until paramedics turned up and took over.

“He is in a protective hall where all the sex cases go in the jail.

“All the staff who dealt with it are quite shaken up. It was quite horrific.”

The Scottish Prison Service told the newspaper an incident had taken place but refused to provide details.

Sentencing Lin in October, Judge Lord Mulholland told him: “You took advantage of her intoxication and carried her into the lane where you raped her.

"Your conduct that night was despicable and you should be ashamed of yourself for doing what you did to that young woman.

“You appear to have outdated attitudes towards women.

"You appeared to blame your victim for the position you find yourself in, you are wrong in that. Women are not fair game. Intoxicated women have as much right to the protection of the law as any other women.

"This was an appalling crime.”
