A drama school graduate who told police he may have attacked a girl while sleepwalking was cleared of rape.
Nick Walker, 21, was accused of raping a 21-year-old woman during a sleepover at a student flat after a night out drinking.
The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art scholar initially told detectives he may have 'done it' in his sleep.
When asked if he had raped the woman while sleepwalking, Mr Walker responded: 'I would definitely wake up before that point.
'I don't believe that I would do something like that and not wake up.'
'I felt like this weird sensation had woken me up. I have no idea how my clothes were removed.'
Quote from article:
the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had been out drinking with Mr Walker and other RADA students at the University of London Union bar in the centre of the city before they came back to sleep in the living room. She told the court she awoke to find Mr Walker was having sex with her.
Following his arrest he told officers: 'I can't remember physically doing it. I was not drunk and if I did do it, it was in my sleep.'

Did you read the article? He has done this before with his girlfriend. Simply because you cannot imagine having a problem like this or because you cannot comprehend someone else having a problem like this does not mean it is not a genuine problem that does not exist.

Sleep sex is real, I know it for a fact. I went years without knowing I had this. You don't wake up knowing you did something. You have absolutely no memory of doing anything.
