Man jailed for rape of sleeping teen

A MAN who raped an unconscious teenager on a Sydney train platform could spend the next decade in jail.

In the early hours of December 16, 2010 Avineshwar Nand, 30, spotted an 18-year-old girl passed out on a bench at the Newtown Station. He stripped down and had sex with her.

When police were called to the scene Nand told them he and the girl were friends.

Both were arrested by police but when the girl came to, she asked police if the man she had never seen before had touched her.

The girl reportedly suffered from insomnia and had been drinking heavily to get some sleep.

Nand pleaded guilty to sexual assault.

According to news.com.au the court heard it was the third time Nand had been convicted of engaging in sexual activity with women while they were asleep.

In 2006 he raped a young single mother in her bed and in 2004 he was convicted of molesting a 57-year-old woman in her home.

He has been jailed for up to 11 years.
