Sounds like a wee bit sketchy defense to me.
A 27-year-old man from northern Sweden charged with raping a sleeping woman has defended himself by claiming he too was asleep at the time.
The incident took place in June last summer in the village of Vilhelmina after the woman had passed out in a cabin following a night of heavy drinking.
The 27-year-old then began having sexual intercourse with the sleeping woman, according to the indictment, which was filed on Thursday in the Lycksele District Court.
As the woman was judged to be in a helpless state at the time of the incident, prosecutors have charged the man with rape.
