A father who raped his 4-year-old daughter has been let off after courts accepted his excuse that he was sleepwalking.

The father, a 30-year-old resident of Belgium, returned home after drinking with friends, going to sleep in the same room as his 4-year-old daughter.

He was alleged to have raped the girl after she woke him up to go to the toilet.

The man admits raping his daughter, but says he was asleep:

“This is a sexual version of sleepwalking. I was deeply ashamed when I found out what was happening.”

He claimed he only awoke when his daughter began screaming: “Papa it’s me. It’s me.”

His defence claims he suffered from a rare condition called “sexsomnia,” in which a person engages in sexual behaviour whilst sleepwalking.

The defence argued for absolving him of all responsibility for the incident:

“My client has had sleep problems for a long time. When he was living with the girl’s mother he often had sex with her in his sleep.

He could not remember what happened with his daughter the next day. He is deeply sorry. But he could do nothing about it. He was powerless.”

Police agreed:

“You have people who talk or walk in their sleep. You have others who eat cakes and take things from the fridge. And you have a few who want to have sex.”

The court opted to give him the benefit of the doubt and ruled he could not be charged. The prosecution intends to appeal the ruling.

The girl’s mother is aghast:

“This verdict gives a green light to all rapists and paedophiles to escape the law”

The ruling was widely condemned as “the summit of perversity,” with the Belgian public being especially sensitive to paedophilia scandals after a huge child sex slave scandal in recent years.

However, since being classified in 1996 a number of men accused of rape have successfully mounted a “sexsomnia” defence – “Your honour, I was sleep-raping” may yet become a common defence in such cases.

    Dunno about this actually there is a good chance of being true, I know a guy who sometimes cooks when he is asleep and I am not joking.

    Wow, Actually guys, this situation happened to me; I was sleeping with my girlfriend and began doing stuff to her, eyes open; I woke up only when she said : " *********; you're awake ? ", and I was like " wtf , sorry ". I remembered about half the things I did and I think it's because I wasn't satisfied sexually.

    It's really true, so I think what that guy said can be true. Even if personnally.. I don't think I'll ever rape my own daughter while sleeping..this guy seriously needed to be drunk and in need of getting laid to rape his own daughter.

    Now, the girls mother knew he'd pound away on her vag while he slept and she still thought it was ok to let their daughter sleepover? Seems like the mother is in part to blame for this blunder too. That is if he really did sleep-rape his daughter and not just strait up rape her.

    There are ways to check if they really have sexsomnia. Certain neural pathways light up during these instances of sleep-sex that don't light up during normal sex. For instance, the pathways for normal sleep are visibly active whereas the pathways registering cognitive recognition of one's own actions are completely blank and register no activity whatsoever.

    Furthermore, sexsomnia isn't something that can easily be remedied. My ex had it and she used to wake me up with sex every damn night no matter how much sleep or sex she'd gotten before. This means that true rapists will easily be caught and those with actual sexsomnia will be left to seek some form of treatment, whatever treatment there may be.

    They say that men true colours will shine bright once they're drunk.. So basically, all this time he did have some desire on his child..?

    Remember that true crime requires:

    * cognizance of good vs evil
    * intent
    * action

    I'm thinking that for the protection of society, they ALREADY SHOULD HAVE HAD this guy report to jail every night, sleep in a locked cell by himself, and then they release him every morning, after applying a test to ensure he's truly awake.

    Its an actual condition and apparently the guys done it before. The proof was presented, not like he just randomly claimed sexsomnia. Not necessarily an easy case but I understand the logic. Its something thats hard to explain obviously, but not entirely impossible far as I know.

    He is still a danger though, not a legal danger but a sleep walking danger. Something needs to be done so he can't touch anyone in his sleep.

    The child needs to be taken away from him, at any rate.

    Something most of you whom are angry are missing, is that in this type of situation, they do use various tests (IE: lie detector, etc) to see whether the person was truly aware of what was occurring at the time.

    Sexomnia is a real thing, it seems regularly getting drunk has a lot to do with it.
    I would say the man is somewhat guilty if he knew about his own condition and didn't take any steps to fix it for the protection of others, something as simple as giving up booze for example.

    My sister broke into a god damned corner store a km away, in winter, in the nude. Her sleepwalking issues got really severe to the point where if she locked herself into her room, she'd escape out the first floor window in her sleep. She was having survival dreams and zombie scenarios and was super stressed most of the time.

    The dude needs to be carefully observed by all parties and if possible given a clean bill of health. And he needs to not sleep in the same room as his damn daughter. Get her a lock.

    I didn't find out about most of the shit I did in my sleep until decades later as a side note. If this is sexsomnia, there is a reasonable way to solve this without ruining your relationship.

    Like many have said you can't just say I have sexsomnia, it has to be medically proven which seems to be the case with insident. Also he probably wouldn't have done this if he hadn't been drinking as alchol can make the cases worse, now i'm not saying it's the girls fault but it was probably terrible coinsidence that when the girl tried to wake him up by probably pushing him genetly his brain misinterpreted this.

    Yes he should have been punished more than he did, maybe therapy and had custody of his children revoked. BUt not to the extent that some people on here are making out.
