A lawyer was given a lenient sentence despite raping a man while he was drunk.

38-year-old Sergeii C from Ukraine, was at the Oktoberfest beer festival in Munich, Germany, where there were a lot of tourists.

After drinking about 10 pints of beer, Sergeii went to Kotzhugel, a place with tents where many drinkers go to sleep rather than driving home while drunk.

There he went over to a 32-year-old American tourist, who was passed out, and raped the man.

Two people who witnessed Sergeii going over to the American tourist, who has not been named, recorded him and handed over the footage to officers when they arrived.

The witnesses told police that they assumed Sergeii was going to rob the sleeping man. They were shocked when he forced the American tourist to perform sex acts on him.

Sergeii told the court that he did not remember the sexual assault as he was very drunk. He also said that he was not gay despite the fact that the video showed him sexually abusing the man.

Sergeii, who testified at the district court with the help of a translator, was given a two-year suspended prison sentence.
