Prosecutors suggested Wednesday that a man who claims he had a sleep disorder known as sexsomnia and is therefore not guilty of sexual assault is engaging in a charade to save himself and his relationship with his girlfriend.

Crown counsel Alan Ip made the suggestion during his cross-examination of Karl Richard Antonius, 51, who has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting a woman during a blind date in September 2015.

Ip suggested that the actions of the accused, who claims he was asleep at the time of the alleged sexual assault in his apartment at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel, prior to the assault in touching the young woman on the buttocks and hip signalled an intention to have sex with her.

Exclusive: B.C. jail guard accused of sexually abusing 200 young inmates

  Exclusive: B.C. jail guard accused of sexually abusing 200 young inmates Just a couple of years into Roderic David MacDougall’s two-decade career as a provincial corrections officer, co-workers began to raise concerns with Oakalla prison managers that young inmates were being sexually abused. The other guards noticed a worrisome pattern: Every time MacDougall, who controlled whether inmates got temporary absences and other perks, spoke to older inmates in his office, it took just a few minutes. When teenage inmates were behind his closed door, the sessions appeared to last much longer, about 45 minutes.

A Brockville, Ont., judge has rejected a man 's sexsomnia defence and ruled he is criminally responsible for the sexual assault of a woman in 2011. When he appealed again, he admitted to the crime but presented evidence that he was suffering from sexsomnia — engaging in sexual acts while

Sexsomnia is a form of parasomnia, when an individual engages in sex while being asleep. Crown counsel Alan Ip said during cross-examination of the defendant that Antonius was maintaining a “ charade ” with his claims of having a sleep disorder.

“I didn’t invite her back to the place to have sex,” said Antonius. “I brought her back to the hotel because she didn’t have her key and she had nowhere to go.”

Ip said the circumstance which brought the two together on his bed were so that the mining company executive “could get something out of it.”

“I wanted to see her again,” said Antonius. “I didn’t want to have sex on the first date.”

“You were going to have sex with (the complainant) that night, no matter what,” said Ip.

“No,” replied Antonius. “I didn’t intend to have sex with (her). I never talked about sex once with her. There was no discussion ever about sex.”

Ip suggested to Antonius that contrary to his claim that he was asleep, all that happened was that he had had too much to drink that evening.

How a 'deeply disturbing' police misstep derailed a sexual assault case

  How a 'deeply disturbing' police misstep derailed a sexual assault case A Nova Scotia woman says she trusted that authorities were properly handling her case after she reported she'd been raped. This summer, a judge threw out the charges against the man she testified sexually assaulted her after RCMP lost her rape kit.Nicole, a 35-year-old single mom, drove up next to Jordan Ellis, a 34-year-old fisherman from the nearby community of Hillsburn. She had recently joined the popular Facebook discussion group Nova Scotia Unfiltered, where she met Ellis, to become more social after leaving an abusive relationship.

A Canadian executive who has been accused of sexual assault said at his trial this week that he was experiencing “ sexsomnia ” when the alleged abuse Karl Richard Antonius — the president and CEO for Boreal Metals Corp — has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting a woman he’d taken out for a

Why are sexual assault and misbehaviour allegations against Biden being ignored? Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has been accused of sexual assault by a former staffer.

“I wasn’t drunk,” said Antonius. “I had drinks that evening. I wasn’t out of control. I wasn’t staggering. I felt good.”

The prosecutor then questioned Antonius about a trip to Mexico last year in which he admits he sexually assaulted his 20-year-old girlfriend, but claims he was also suffering from sexsomnia at the time.

Ip suggested that Antonius had had a “fair amount to drink” prior to the attempt by Antonius to have sex with his girlfriend, who cannot be identified due to a publication ban.

He said that the accused wanted to have sex with her before they went back to their bedroom, a suggestion that an upset Antonius took exception to.

“You’re suggesting I’m going to rape my girlfriend,” said Antonius. “Is that what you’re asking?”

“I’m suggesting that you wanted to have sex with her when you got back to the room,” said Ip, a suggestion denied by Antonius.

When Ip suggested that he was going to have sex with his girlfriend “no matter what,” the girlfriend, who was seated in the courtroom, got up and stormed out of the courtroom.

The prosecutor then said that for the sake of his relationship and his “future,” he was maintaining a charade.

“You have maintained this charade that you have no memory of the sexual assaults on (the alleged victim) and (the girlfriend)?” Ip told Antonius, who retorted that the prosecutor was lying.

“What lies?” asked Ip.

“I would never intentionally do that to a woman,” said Antonius.

“You remember and you know exactly what you did to (the girlfriend) and (the complainant),” said Ip.

“No,” said Antonius.
