A migrant who raped a 10-year-old boy in a swimming pool has had his conviction overturned because the court could not prove that the child said no. The man, identified only as 20-year-old Iraqi Amir A, violently sexually assaulted the victim while he was undergoing an integration process at Theresienbad pool (above) in Vienna, Austria, last December.
