You know how Sports Illustrated publishes their weekly "This Week's Sign That The Apocalypse Is Upon Us"? Well, this is one messed-up, apocalypse-approaching world when a man can claim "sexsomnia" and be acquitted of raping a 15-year-old girl.

A British airline 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.  

Ecott's girlfriend even took the stand to support her beau. She said Ecott often fondled her in his sleep. Right, sexsomnia. Or just the normal actions of a pervert rapist who should be behind bars.
