Sydney man found not guilty of raping lesbian

Posted in: International Daily News
By Daily News staff - 29th October 2010

A Sydney man has been found not guilty of raping a lesbian who claims he told her she "had not met the best man yet" before attacking her.

The Herald Sun reports the jury deliberated for just an hour before acquitting Bruce William Le Cornu of three sex charges.

He contended the sex with the visually impaired woman was consensual, something the complainant told the jury was "preposterous".

She met Le Cornu at a pub where she had been drinking and had taken strong medication for pain relief.

She could not remember leaving the pub or leaving with anyone, but recalled telling a man about her sexual preferences and later being dragged by her hair across the lounge room before being raped.
