A plasterer from Exmouth has been warned he faces jail after being found guilty of groping a comatose woman after playing a drinking game called Shot Roulette.

Exeter Crown Court heard the victim was left traumatised.

Jamie Luxton, 24, of King Street, Exmouth, was cleared of one charge of groping the woman, but found guilty of a second charge.

He claimed she had given drunken consent to everything he did.

Judge Graham Cottle adjourned the case for a probation report and bailed Luxton. He told him: “You should not take that as any indication of sentence.

“The overwhelming likelihood is that for these offences you will receive an immediate custodial sentence.”

During a three-day trial, the woman claimed she was assaulted twice when she was very drunk after taking part in a drinking game.

Luxton denied assaulting the woman. He said she was smiling and initiated contact on each occasion. He said she had consented to everything.
