Heard about this via Maetenloch at Ace of Spades HQ:

The Local: Forced ‘infidelity check’ not rape: Swedish court

The man had previously been convicted of rape by a lower court after he tore off his girlfriend’s clothes and forced his fingers into her genitals on suspicion that she had been unfaithful, legal trade publication Dagens Juridik reported.

The lower court had also convicted the man of several other charges related to repeated assaults and threats directed against girlfriend in a relationship that had been marked by jealousy and suspicion.

But upon reviewing the case, the Svea Court of Appeal threw out the rape conviction, arguing that the man’s actions weren’t sexual in nature.

One has to marvel at the mental gymnastics that must have gone into such a bizarre contortion of logic.

Colorado state Rep. Joe Salazar must be feeling pretty good about this, as it fits in line with his assertion that women can’t tell when an man is trying to rape them.
