A man has been arrested and charged with rape after he had unprotected sex with his girlfriend who thought he was wearing a condom. The lady was said to have been angered and reported him to police who have since charged him to court.
The couple had met on a dating site, Tinder, in Lausanne, Switzerland. The man told the court that he had removed the condom after it ripped while he was about wearing it.
The court sentenced him to a 12-month suspended prison sentence.
The verdict is the first time a Swiss court has ruled unprotected consensual sex was tantamount to rape, the victim's lawyer told broadcaster RTS.
