THE GUILTY (VHS) 1992 "The Guilty" is a 1992 TV movie starring Michael Kitchen. He plays Steven Vey, an excellent attorney who is totally self-involved, arrogant, and amoral.

He wants to have sex with her, but Nicky realizes it's a mistake. After all, he's her boss and he's married. Steven doesn't take no for an answer and rapes her. Nicky is too traumatized to report it or do anything about it, but Steven is bothered by her presence and has her fired. Then he is made a Judge.

Well i will not give the plot away get it have a look.
This probably happens more than we know BUT women should be careful is they ask a Man up for a Coffee.
No means no but actions can be confusing.
Here is my review from amazon.com: Two actors who have become well known in the US (at least by watchers of British TV on PBS stations) are Michael Kitchen in Foyle's War and Caroline Catz in Doc Martin. Impressed by both, I looked to see what other movies each had made and discovered both were in this film, "The Guilty" a 201 minute mini-series shown on British TV almost 20 years ago. Kitchen was well established in Britain by then but, except for a small role as a receptionist in a single episode of a long running sitcom, it was Catz's first film-she was 22 years old.
The movie is simply terrific-gripping until the very end and though there are some spoilers in reviews and commentary on Amazon.com, very suspensful throughout. I can't remember when my wife and I were last so engrossed in a movie and I am amazed that it hasn't been a smash hit. (It did get some awards in Britain when it was shown there on TV back in 1992.) The acting throughout is excellent. Kitchen has the same mannerisms and low key acting that make him such a compelling Foyle-though of course he is playing a role which is almost the polar opposite in terms of character. Catz is equally accomplished, and one has a foretaste of her excellent acting as Louisa Glasson in Doc Martin. Her career after this movie and until Doc Martin consisted mainly of being a police officer in a series of detective serials, a few episodes of "The Bill" and "The Vice" and being the co-star police detective in a three season program "Murder in Suburbia" all well known in Britain but not familiar to most American audiences. I'm surprised that her performance in "The Guilty" didn't turn her into an international star overnight.
One [US] reviewer disliked it because Michael Kitchen's moral character was so different than in Foyle's War. Yes, it is, but to me it only shows what a versatile actor he is. I don't think that should be held against the movie. A couple of others have commented on the unusual number of coincidences necessary to drive the plot forward. I agree, and more than once I muttered that only if one of the characters had spoken up about what they knew, the situation might have turned out for the better. But, I don't think of this as a defect-it simply allowed the complexity of thoughts and motives of the leading characters to be fully developed.
I'd give "The Guilty" twenty stars if possible. It is a superb film.
