A self-proclaimed 'sexsomniac' has been cleared of charges of rape, according to The Independent.

Lawrence Barilli, the formerly accused, told female victim that the condition compelled him to perform the act. She told jurors that such incidents occurred "a couple of hundred of times".

Bariilli, however, insisted that he had no recollection of these events.

Between September 2011 and October 2012, he was charged with the assault and rape of  the woman.

The incidents are said to have occurred in a number of locations including Glasgow's Shettleston and Uddingston, South Lanarkshire.  But a jury returned a not proven verdict to the rape charge.

British model kidnapped for sex trade

The woman – also 35 – started dating Barilli after the break-up of a previous long term relationship.

Prosecutor Peter Ferguson QC asked was there anything “sexual” that caused her “upset”.

She claimed the first incident happened months after they had been together.

She recalled: “I would wake up with him having s** with me. I did not really not know what to think. I thought it was something that he was trying to spice up the relationship. It was silent throughout...I did not like it.”
