Molester claims innocence because he was sleepwalking
Alleged Babysitter Molester Says He Is Innocent Because He Was Sleepwalking
Thursday , May 24, 2007
PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. —
A Georgia man accused of sexual battery says he has no recollection of assaulting the family babysitter because he was sleepwalking.
The babysitter said she caught Scott Axelberg with his hand in her underwear in the middle of the night in 2004. Axelberg is on trial for aggravated sexual battery.
His lawyers argue that a person cannot be guilty if he or she isn't aware of what you’re doing.
“I don’t remember anything, and when I do have something to remember, it was a dream-like situation,” Axelberg testified in court Wednesday, reported FOX affiliate WAGA.

A doctor for the defense testified that sleepwalkers can cook, drive and even have sex without waking up, WAGA reported. But on cross-examination, the prosecutor accused Axelberg of using sleepwalking as an excuse.
Axelberg had admitted to an investigator that he in fact did touch the babysitter. But he told jurors Wednesday that he just said that to end the interview.
“It didn’t matter what I said at that time,” Axelberg said. “[The police office] had already read my rights. No matter what I did, that man was going to arrest me.”
Axelberg appears to have some recollection of what took place. A doctor testified for the prosecution that when people suffer from what is called “sex-phobia” or “sex-somnia,” they never have any recollection of what they did in their sleep. So the fact that Axelberg has some recollection is startling, they said.
The babysitter, who was 16 on the night in question, said she was watching the defendant’s toddlers overnight so that Axelberg and his family could get an early start to his son’s baseball tournament, reported WSBTV.com.
She said she woke with a start from her slumber on the couch when Axelberg put his hand in her pants.
"He got up off his knees and he buttoned both buttons on his shorts and zipped up his pants and walked into his bedroom," the girl said, reported WSBTV.com.
Closing arguments in the case begin Thursday.

Ah, cool... so when the babysitter's Dad shows up and smokes this guy with a .45, he can say he did that in his sleep too??

nah, Id rather just duct tape him into the passenger seat of my car, park alongside a barbed wire fence, take his hand(the one he put on the girl) put it out the window, duct tape it around the barbed wire fence, and then take off driving as fast as i can. Then i would duct tape him to a chair and put a nail through each one of his testicles, nailing him to a chair. That should teach him. (yes, i have thought of this before, when ive heard other stories of molesters)
