Brisbane, Feb 18 (ANI): An Irish nurse jailed for raping a mother of two in a Brisbane pub toilet has been asked to get help for her 'sexual aggression.'

Anne Marie O'Loughlin has been sentenced her two and half years' jail, with a recommendation she be released on parole on March 3, 2012, reports Brisbane Times.

Dublin-born 25-year-old, who came to Brisbane in 2008 and worked as a nurse at the Mater Hospital, was convicted after her trial in the Brisbane District Court in October 2010.

The jury heard she had kissed a 32-year-old woman in a toilet cubicle at the Caxton Hotel in Petrie Terrace in November 2009.

When the woman tried to get away, O'Loughlin locked the cubicle door, slammed the victim's head into a wall and digitally raped her.

O'Loughlin told police she had no memory of the incident but admitted she got 'loopy' when she drank wine with other alcohol.

Following a five-day trial she was found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of deprivation of liberty.

In court, prosecutor Chris Minnery called for O'Loughlin to be sentenced to three years with release on parole after she served 18 months.

Judge David Reid said evidence O'Loughlin had overpowered her victim suggested 'persistent sexual aggression'.

"I hope you will use your time in prison to address issues you have with the consumption of alcohol and sexual aggression," he said. (ANI)
