An American businessman kissed and embraced his wife after he was found not guilty of raping a woman whom he had allegedly followed home last year after meeting her several times in pubs. Antonio Hasbun, 35, had pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting the woman in her bedroom last November, at the Court of First Instance. A jury returned the unanimous verdict yesterday. The woman testified she had had six glasses of wine, two glasses of beer, five cocktails, and a shooter in bars that evening.
