A Manitoba man is suing the mother of his child, claiming he shouldn't have to pay child support because he was asleep when she had sex with him.
In a statement of claim filed in Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench last week, the man from Tyndall, Man., claims he was visiting the woman from Selkirk in late 2006 when he fell asleep.
The man alleges he woke up and found the woman was having sexual intercourse with him. he man says when he "demanded that she cease and desist" she complied. But about nine months later the woman gave birth to a child that he agrees is his.
OK. Some people would think this is a brilliant defense. I was asleep during sex so how can I be held accountable. Well, he story falls apart at the point he wakes up. What court is going to believe that he demanded that she stop. He might as well claim he was raped.
