Don't Let This Happen To You

Paul John Chappell, 31, of Sydney, Australia thought he had gotten lucky when a magazine editor invited him back to her apartment after meeting her that night. She invited him to her bed but begged off sex at the last minute because he was too drunk. So Chappell gets up to go to the bathroom and loses his way back, going instead into the bedroom of the editor's housemate, a 23 year old woman.

Chappell tried his luck again, thinking he was in bed with the editor. The housemate accepted his advances, thinking it was her boyfriend, who had come home with her. They had a wonderful night of romance, or would have if they were having sex with the persons they thought they were.

Then came that unhappy moment when the 23 year old housemate turned on the bedroom light to see her boyfriend passed out drunk on the living room couch and some strange drunken guy she'd never seen before in her bed with a big smile on his face. The romance ended at that point and the screaming hysteria began.

Chappell sobered up considerably when he was charged with rape, though Magistrate Margaret Quinn opined it "may well be a difficult case for the prosecution" to prove.
