NORTH HAVERHILL, N.H. (AP) - A jury has cleared a former Dartmouth College student of all charges in a rape trial.

Last May, Hanover police arrested then-20-year-old Parker Gilbert, a freshman from London, on multiple counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. The arrest followed a complaint from a female student who said she was attacked after Gilbert entered her unlocked dorm room.

Gilbert pleaded not guilty and the defense argued the sexual encounter was consensual. A judge dropped two of the charges this week.

The jury deliberated for about four hours Thursday before finding Gilbert not guilty of all of the charges.

The trial started March 17.
