'Sexsomniac' RAF man sobs as he is cleared of raping girl in his sleep
An RAF mechanic who claimed he was sleepwalking when he had sex with a year-old girl was cleared of rape yesterday. Senior Aircraftsman Kenneth Ecott, 26, broke down in tears after a jury took two hours to agree that he was not responsible for his actions. Instead he insisted he had a condition known as 'sexsomnia' in which sufferers carry out indecent acts in their sleep.
