Florida Man Found Not Guilty of Rape Following 30 Minutes of Deliberation

George Brainard, 29, of Daytona Beach, Florida, was found not guilty of rape after jury deliberated for 30 minutes. In 2014, Brainard, then a pedicab driver (like a rickshaw, but less cool), picked up the accuser from the Daytona International Speedway. The accuser was drunk and belligerent, and initiated sex with him, then told Brainard that she was a cop and that she had his DNA. Brainard threw her out of the pedicab and fled the area. Both the accuser and Brainard testified. The accuser says she only remembered Brainard throwing her out of the pedicab near the woods, but accused him of raping her and having injuries, though a doctor found no injuries. Brainard said the sex was consensual and that he kicked her out of the pedicab when she became hostile.
