With the proviso that no-one in this squalid little tale comes out with any glory, why shouldn’t he offer the defence of intoxication? A common theme of rape allegations is that the female claims to be that drunk, she couldn’t have consented, therefore why not the opposite; he states he was that drunk, he didn’t know what was going on.
Surely if alcohol based amnesia is good for one, it’s good for all. I also bring to mind a similar case recently involving an RMP officer and some sexual shenanigans, are officers’ messes just frat houses now?
Memory jog:- BAOR About 1976-7ish. On guard duty. Part of the route was through the officers mess single accommodation block. Walking slowly along a deserted corridoor at silly O'clock in the morning, noises coming from a room, with its door open a few inches, an officer back scuttling the SSAFA sister. A hurried exit. I told no one. Same officers block. Again early hours, The guard was turned out to a fracas involving two very drunk young officers. Both taken into the guard room. RSM and duty officer called out.
