Sleep and rape, the perfect unicrime.
From the daily Telegraph.
"A BRITISH RAF mechanic who claimed he was sleepwalking when he had sex with a 15-year-old girl has been cleared of rape.
Senior Aircraftsman Kenneth Ecott, 26, wept after a jury took two hours to find he was not responsible for his actions.
Mr Ecott did not deny having sex with the girl, but said he had no memory of it happening.
Instead he insisted he had a condition known as sexsomnia in which sufferers carry out indecent acts in their sleep.
It was this affliction that made him climb naked on top of the girl at a friend's birthday party sleepover in Poole, Dorset, the Bournemouth Crown Court heard.
The girl screamed when she awoke.
Mr Ecott was said to have confessed to the girl's family and apologised for having sex with her.
But when he was arrested in his barracks at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, he told police he was prone to sleepwalking.
He claimed to have been in a state of automatism while with the girl, meaning he was not aware of his actions.
His girlfriend told the court that he had fondled her in bed while asleep.'
Sexsomnia? SEXSOMNIA? That's new to me, but not to the courts it seems, this next one is from 2005,
"A Toronto area man was acquitted this week of sexual assault after a judge ruled he was asleep during the attack, a Canadian newspaper reported.
The acquitted 33-year-old landscaper had met a woman at a party in July. Both had been drinking and fell asleep on a couch.
The woman woke up to find the landscaper having sex with her and pushed him off. He immediately woke up, but told the court he only suspected they had had sex after going to the bathroom and finding he was still wearing a condom.
A sleep expert testified at his trial that the man suffered from sexomnia, a sort of sleep walking that includes sexual acts, likely brought on by alcohol, sleep deprivation and genetics.
The man had previously had “sleep sex” with four girlfriends, the court heard."
Sleep sex? What the fuck is sleep sex? who was asleep him or his girlfriends?
Wouldn't you think that if he knew he had this 'problem' he might reconsider sleeping next to drunk women he had only just met. The whole thing stink to the high heaven. And that RAF guy ADMITTED he had sex with that poor kid. Why did it even go to court?
Sleep groping? Sleep fucking? Sleep raping? What the hell is next, sleep stabbing, sleep shooting? Sleep driving car drunk?
If I killed someone while driving drunk do you think a jury would let me away with it if I said I was asleep? Fuck no. Only sleep rape gets to use that out of jail free card.
This is an outrage.
