    Former Iowa lawmaker found not guilty of spousal sex abuse

    GARNER, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa jury on Wednesday found a longtime state lawmaker not guilty of sexually abusing his wife who had dementia, in an unusual case that centered on when a person is no longer mentally capable of consenting to sex.
    After about 13 hours of deliberation over three days, jurors found Henry Rayhons, 78, not guilty of third-degree sexual abuse of his wife, Donna Lou Rayhons. He was accused of having sex with her at a nursing home in May after being told by staff that she was no longer capable of consenting due to dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease. She died in August.



    Henry Rayhons testified in his own defense that on the night in question the couple held hands, prayed and kissed, but had no sexual contact.
    “The truth finally came out,” Rayhons said after the verdict, noting that he believed his wife was “with him” throughout the trial.

    He was a state representative and this was just another of growing actions to use police and courts against political adversaries. Outrageous. The police and prosecutor should be convicted of official oppression and criminal civil rights violation.
