The Jury cleared him up of all six charges of sexual assault.
Six charges of aggravated sexual assault were put on a man accused of raping his Tinder date in Sydney, but the jury found him not guilty on all of them.
The Brazilian national Rogerio Luiz De Souza Correia’s six alternative counts of the lesser charge of sexual assault were also dismissed at the Downing Centre District Court.
He was alleged to have had all kinds of sexual intercourse with the 29-year-old woman he found on Tinder without her consent, while she was repeatedly saying “no” and trying to push him away.
He pleaded not guilty to all six counts, even though he did not testify during the trial. His attorney said that at one point, Correia inserted his fingers into her private parts, but it was all consensual.
They met on the Tinder dating app in 2016 and after the event, the woman had called the police immediately and went straight to the hospital where semen was found in her labia. The attorney told the jury that the semen had not entered the woman’s genitals by his client’s male organ, but via his fingers.
The attorney told the court on Tuesday that his client will conclusively be sent to his home country, the ABC reported.
