Defence lawyer tells sex assault retrial complainant had 'buyer's remorse'
It's expected Judge Jerry LeGrandeur will reserve his decision once closing arguments wrap up
The lawyer for a man facing a sex assault retrial sparked by a judge's remarks to the complainant about keeping her knees together says the woman had a case of "buyer's remorse."
Alexander Wagar was initially acquitted of the 2011 charge two years ago by Calgary Judge Robin Camp.
Camp's ruling was overturned by the Alberta Court of Appeal and a new trial ordered.
Lawyer Pat Flynn, in his closing argument, told the court there was a consensual sex act between two people at a party.
He said it was only afterward that the complainant changed her mind when Wagar hooked up with another woman at the same party.
It's expected that Judge Jerry LeGrandeur will reserve his decision once closing arguments wrap up.
