Melbourne, Dec 3 (ANI): A jury has found an Irish woman guilty of raping another woman in a toilet cubicle at an inner Brisbane hotel.
Anne-Marie O'Loughlin had pleaded not guilty in the Brisbane District Court to two counts of rape, deprivation of liberty and sexual assault.
But now, O'Loughlin has been found guilty of two rape charges and deprivation of liberty, reports News.com.au.
However, she was found not guilty of the sexual assault charge.The court had been told the victim, who cannot be named, was at the Caxton Street Hotel with her partner and friends when she went alone to the bathroom and was raped by O'Loughlin on November 29, 2008.
O'Loughlin first kissed the victim, who kissed her back in a bid to escape, the court was told.
But when the victim tried to leave, O'Loughlin grabbed her by the hair, slammed her head into a wall and pulled her into a toilet cubicle.
The court was told O'Loughlin then digitally raped the woman.
O'Loughlin left before security came but she forgot her purse containing identification and it was picked up by the victim.
O'Loughlin was detained outside the hotel and later told police she had only kissed the woman in the toilets.
The trial heard samples of skin found under O'Loughlin's fingernails matched the victim's DNA. (ANI)
